v. 3 “But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. (…)
8 From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.”
Going through a divorce, I felt very vulnerable. The imagery of God being all around me as a shield was so comforting. Divorce is also very humiliating. I loved the gentle reminder that God is the one who lifts up my head.
Going through trials of any kind can leave a person lying awake at night, restless with worry and concern. God is the One who can give us sleep. We truly can leave our lives in His hands. He is our deliverer!
