Covered and Carried
In this collection of devotional essays edited by Carolyn Rathbun Sutton, contemporary daughters of God tell their stories of rejecting enemy lies-lies such as "God has abandoned you, leaving you unprotected, alone, and without hope." With confident voices, share from personal experience how "God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work" (2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV). They tell of grace, perseverance, and new beginnings.
God’s daughters throughout history have always been covered. Miriam, along with her cowanderers in the Sinai desert, found relief from the noonday heat beneath a billowing cloud, a cloud that concealed God's real-time, caring, and protective presence. "Under His wings" (Psalm 91:4, NKJV) and within "the shadow of My hand" (Isaiah 51:16, NKJV), she and her sisters learned to trust, pray, endure trial, obey, and serve.
Furthermore, God’s daughters, such as Mary Magdalene (see Luke 8:2), experienced Heaven uplifting them (Psalm 30:1) and carrying them to victory through discouragement, grief, traumatic loss, injustice, and addictions.
They tell of what it’s like to be . . . covered and carried.
