But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I had to stop my car a few weeks ago and snap a picture when I saw this huge inflatable snowman in someone’s yard. Doesn’t he look sad?
When I see someone with their head hanging down, my heart aches.
I want to tell them that even in their saddest moments there is a Father who longs to lift their head.
And when they do, guess what can happen next?
With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. I lay down and sleep; I waken again, for the Lord sustains me.
God promises to hear us.
God promises to answer us.
He promises sleep when we lay down.
And most of all He promises to sustain us.
Tonight, as I head to bed I find comfort in knowing that I have a Father who longs to be the “Lifter of My Head.”
That means that even when I don’t have the strength or desire to lift it myself, He is willing to do it for me.
I’m praying that if you are feeling a little low today, that you will turn to Psalm 3 and claim the verses above as you say goodbye to 2010 and venture into a new year.
God longs to walk beside you…..
Lifting your head towards Him every step of the way.
