Things that happen in our lives have a way of either making us stronger or bringing us down. Things that cause so much pain, we don’t know if we are going to make it through. Things that make us so joyful, we cannot help but cry those happy tears! We’ve all experienced probably both.
Psalm 3 verse 3 says, But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I often wonder what David was feeling when he wrote a lot of the Psalms especially this one. He was running from his own son and was begging for God’s protection and help. I cannot imagine the heart break!
When I am experiencing the pain and am feeling down, I like to remember the song by Jars of Clay, God Will Lift Up Your Head. I love this song. Listen to the words when you have a chance.
God hears your sighs and counts your tears. God will lift up your head!
