The Lifter of My Head

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, His goodness and our blessings He will get us through it.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

 

I invite you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord.  He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you.  Turn to Him, put your hope in Him, and put your trust in Him alone.  He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace.  You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.
