The Lifter of my Head........

Psalm 3:3

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

I had to stop my car a few weeks ago and snap a picture when I saw this huge inflatable snowman in someone's yard.  Doesn't he look sad?

When I see someone with their head hanging down, my heart aches.

I want to tell them that even in their saddest moments there is a Father who longs to lift their head.

And when they do, guess what can happen next?

Psalm 3:4-5

With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. I lay down and sleep; I waken again, for the Lord sustains me.

God promises to hear us.

God promises to answer us.

He promises sleep when we lay down.

And most of all He promises to sustain us.

Tonight, as I head to bed I find comfort in knowing that I have a Father who longs to be the "Lifter of My Head."

That means that even when I don't have the strength or desire to lift it myself, He is willing to do it for me.

I'm praying that if you are feeling a little low today, that you will turn to Psalm 3 and claim the verses above as you say goodbye to 2010 and venture into a new year.

God longs to walk beside you.....

Lifting your head towards Him every step of the way.

Thank you for the visual and the words. I am that snowman today. Not exactly the way I hoped to start a new year.

God has used you to lift my head so many times. I know that He will lift yours soon. I am sure that the devil knows God has great plans for you in this new year, and he is trying to discourage you......but YOU KNOW THAT GOD WILL BE VICTORIOUS!!!!

I love you!


I am praying you have a wonderful year filled with the peace that comes from knowing Him.

Love you, too!
