My Heart Trusts in HIM

Psalm 28:7

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.

My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.

I want so much for Psalm 28:7 to be true in my life... every day. Many days it is not. I waste precious time stewing and fretting. I get entangled in restlessness. I fall into the temptation to worry.

There have been times in my life that all was so dark and hopeless that the only thing I COULD do was live out Psalm 28:7. In those times, I truly learned what it meant for "my heart to trust in Him".

What about you? What are you needing to trust the Lord for? Do you have worries and cares that keep you up at night?

The good news is that we have a Heavenly Father who KNOWS. And CARES. Isn't that a great place to rest our hearts? We can trust Him even with those areas of our lives that no one else knows about.

This last school year has been the craziest one yet. I think. ;) Our next to youngest started Kindergarten. Our 3rd son down turned 13 (which made for THREE teens in the house now). Our middle son is working on his driver's permit/license process and just turned 16. Our oldest is finishing high school and is headed off to COLLEGE. I buried my father (and my grandfather 10 days before that). We've learned to care about widows on a whole new level.

Psalm 28:7 DOESN'T say that "all will be well and calm and good and easy"!!!! The Bible isn't a bunch of "feel good" words. Instead it is full of TRUTH. And HOPE. And PRAISE.

Lord, you are my strength and my shield; my hearts trusts in YOU, and I am helped.

My heart leaps for JOY and I will give thanks to YOU in song.
