A Shield

2 Samuel 22
29 Our LORD and God, you are my lamp.
       You turn darkness to light.
30 You help me defeat armies and capture cities.
31 Your way is perfect, LORD, and your word is correct.
       You are a shield for those who run to you for help.

That last sentence is exactly how I experience God’s love sometimes. It really is a shield against all of the messy stuff that we encounter in our lives. A shield against evil and all of the things, big and small, that come between us and peace.

I’m glad that shield is there…not sure how I would make it sometimes if it wasn’t 🙂 Now, to remember to keep running toward it and not away from it like I have done so many times in the past. The more faith, the better as far as I’m concerned!

Have a good day everyone.
