My God is on my Side!

If you are following the 52 Week Plan, you may find yourself smiling on Wednesdays. Right now, it holds a passage from Psalms. This book is a little easier to digest than Isaiah and Job. Last night, I was especially encouraged by Psalms 3. (It seems Joni at Minister Grace was as well). I found myself singing most of the chapter!

O Lord, I have so many enemies;
      so many are against me.
 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.
 Arise, O Lord!
      Rescue me, my God!
   Slap all my enemies in the face!
      Shatter the teeth of the wicked!
 Victory comes from you, O Lord.
      May you bless your people.

During weeks like this one, I am so glad that my God is my Shield and the Lifter of My Head!
Be encouraged - My God is your God too!

Check out my progress here.


  1. Yes! I forgot about this song! I LOVE it... I love that we were singing through our reading yesterday... I am sure you sounded better than I did. I am so glad we are doing the same plan... I get so excited when you have a new post. :)

  2. I loved your song too! I also love reading what you're learning on your blog! I am excited to see all the posts after the year is over! I have started organizing mine on a tab on the blog - Wish I could make myself write everyday, like my awesome dad, but this is at least a start! Thanks for being any encouragement to me!
