Shielded

The Lord was gracious to lead me to Psalm 3 for my 2012 verse, and my darling daughter put it into a beautiful graphic for me. Ready?

I haven’t been able to talk about it much on my blog, but I had a challenging year…emotionally and spiritually. God knew in advance that I would need to daily rely upon my 2011 verse, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Actually blows me away to see how the Lord lived this Word in and through me in His unique sovereign way when I submitted my will to His own. Awes and humbles me.

Even as I praise God for my blessings every day (and they are too numerous to mention), arrows of doubt, disappointment, condemnation, accusation and frustration are aimed smack on the center of my back. I’ve failed many days during these trials to call upon the name of the Lord to strengthen me.

But He’s shielded me anyway.

He is and has always been faithful, even when I’m not. He loves me enough to let me suffer consequences, but He doesn’t leave me alone in them. He is my glory, the Lifter of my chin, my Lord, my shield.

Oh, how glorious it will be to see Him live out Psalm 3:3  in and through me as I surrender my hours and days to Him. In Twenty-Twelve and each year after.

    I needed to hear this. Too many people often forsake the truth, when in reality, everyone needs it;)

    Just gorgeous – the graphic AND your daughter’s blog. And, of course, God. He certainly is a lifter of our heads, isn’t he. Beautiful

    Beautiful graphic! Your 2012 verse is a beauty. I love how God and His Word never fail. Looking forward to the coming year with you.

    Wow! That has been a familiar verse for many years, but as I read it here, I was struck for the first time by the statement, “Thou, O Lord,… are my Glory and the lifter of my head!”

    Not only am I to reflect His glory, but He IS my Glory!

    If my Glory is the external expression or revelation of my innermost character…and if God is my Glory…

    Wow! …that will have me contemplating a while… Wow!
