A Lovely Place to Be

Devoto Memorial Cedar Grove, Lolo Pass, Idaho

For you bless the godly, O LORD; you surround them with your shield of love. Psalm 5:12 NLT

How good is God’s love that surrounds me like a shield?
When anxious thoughts assail me,
Your love is my shield.
When the accuser showers me with his words of guilt and shame.
Your love and forgiveness douse the flaming arrows.
When travails beset my family,
Your love is the stronghold that I pray in.
When my body feels lame with pain,
Your love is my strength to take another step.
When my mind stumbles and I fear what that portends,
I can walk through the darkest valley because Your love lights my way.
Though I slip and fall,
Your shield of love will be steadfast to the end and carry me home.

Jesus said, “Don’t be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me.There are many rooms in my Father’s house. I would not tell you this if it were not true. I am going there to prepare a place for you.After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am. John 14:1-3 NLT
