The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. (Psalm 28:7 NIV)
When I feel weak, I lean on his strength.
When I feel vulnerable and attacked, I hide behind his shield.
When my hope has been betrayed, my heart will trust in him.
When I cry out for help, he hears and responds.
When I realize I am not alone, I am not abandoned, I am loved and cared for by the Almighty God, my heart swells with thanksgiving.
I love because I am loved and there is no situation that is bigger than my God.
So no matter what I am facing, I can and will praise him.
