Easter is the time of year when I reflect on God’s protection over and over again in my life.

He gave me protection through adoption.

He protected me as an infant when I was choking and blue.

There was protection through an undertow at the beach when I was young.

God definitely protected me through one bad decision after another as a teenager.

He has protected me many times from myself.

But the biggest protection from God was by choosing me and dying for me, and for that I am eternally thankful.

It’s hard to wrap my head around why He would do that for me. It’s hard to understand love to that degree.

But He does love me that much, and during this Easter season, my prayer is for you to realize how much God loves you, too.
