"But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head." Psalm 3:3 NIV
No matter what I may be going through, whether it be good times or bad, I know that the Lord is near me. This holds true to all believers. I saw this verse today during a stressful week, and what a PROMISE that the Lord has given! First of all, He is my protector....a shield around me! I thank Him for his glory...not for me to be glorified....but for Him to be glorified! I am so glad that when I am down...He lifts up my head and comforts me. Thank you Lord for being who you are. I am also reminded of the old hymn..."trust and obey..for there's no other way..to be happy in Jesus....but to trust and obey."
