Psalm 3:3

But you are a shield around me, O LORD;
 you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
 Psalm 3:3

Father, I am grateful that:

1) You are a shield around me.  You keep me safe from more than I will ever know or realize. 

2) You bestow glory on me.  I don't have to strive for accolades for myself.  Your glory on me is my deepest desire.

3) You lift up my head. Discouragement or shame might cause my head to hang low...but You give me a reason to face each day head on.


  1. Awesome words to begin my day, thank you. I'm off to go highlight the verse in Thessalonians!

  2. Awesome meditations on His word! You inspire me!

  3. "You give me a reason to face each day head on" this! How else could I get through each and every day with hope, comfort, and strength! His love and grace is amazing...

    Blessings and hugs!

  4. I love how calming this blog is, short but deep posts with refreshing words from God... Really beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing and may God continue to bless the work of your hands
