"But you, LORD, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high."
Psalm 3:3These 17 words are packed with meaning. Isn't it interesting that the short verses often have so much 'meat' to them...so much meaning, filled with nuggets of wisdom?!
I thought of a sunflower when I studied this verse. The sunflower follows the sun. It keeps its corolla upright. It's radiant beauty shines it's brilliance outward.
That's how I want to be. Keeping my eyes upright, firmly planted on the Lord. I do not want to stray. I want to glow with my love for Him, through His love for me.
When there are storms in my life, I will remember that nothing comes through God's shield around me that He does not allow. God has a purpose for the trials He allows in my life. I purpose to trust Him, and sleep content in His glory!
I am adding my page to the World Watercolor Month challenge.
I used Lyra Aquacolors to watercolor my sunflower. After painting, I outlined with a micron pen.
