My Shield


Psalm 5
Listen to my words, LORD,
consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, LORD, detest.
But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.


I had a very rough night! I have never had a night like this, but last night was just strange. I was a bit scared however I talked to my friend and she gave me the greatest verse from the bible.

"have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go" -Joshua 1:9
This was just something new to me, and I was overwhelmed, but after reading that verse I remembered that there is a shield around me. I am protected by God, for he is my shield.
I understand that a lot of crazy things will be happening and especially right now, but thankfully I have a God who is much bigger than any problem I may be facing, and with that said, all my problems will tremble with fear!
Like one of my good friends, and fellow bloggers says "Who Shall I fear"
I also think Sophie is sick. Last night she started gagging as if about to throw up, I hope nothing is wrong with her but she was crying, it was a bit sad.
But on a much lighter note today I will go with my sister down the hill to Whittier. I am excited to see my sister today. It is going to be fun today. I hope to really get some serious praying today. Well people, fellow bloggers I must go because Sophie is biting Julian's leg and growling! whoops :D
God Bless and Goodbye:)
Keep Blogging!
