A Shield Around Me

This weekend I was privileged with the opportunity to stretch my faith. God graced me with several opportunities to cry out to Him in times of need. Some were smaller than others, but all were important to me. While I was at church, we were worshipping and the song lyric, “You are perfect in all of your ways,” filled my heart immediately.

No matter the reasons for having to cry out to the Lord, He is perfect regardless. Even when life does not go I think it should… it goes perfectly according to Him. Because He is perfect in all of His ways.

I may not do everything correctly, but I can rely on Him when things seem to go south.

So, thank you Father.

Thank You for always caring when it feels like You’ve turned a blind eye.Thank You for thinking of my best interest and knowing what would be best for me, when it feels like You’ve picked the worst. Thank you for testing my faith so that I can grow into the woman of God You have called me to be. But mostly thank You for letting me be in an intimate relationship with You through the sacrifice of Your one and only Son.


So many are saying,
    “God will never rescue him!”

But you, O Lord, are a shield around me;
    you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
I cried out to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy mountain. 

I lay down and slept,
    yet I woke up in safety,
    for the Lord was watching over me.
I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies
    who surround me on every side.

Psalm 3:2-6
