MY LORD, MY SHIELD by Deborah Rutter
Psalm 18:3 (GNB) 'I call to the Lord, and he saves me from my enemies. Praise the Lord!'
My dear Lord, I wade within the turmoil of life and all its threats. I surrender all my wounds and hurts unto you. Fears, pain and doubt that clung to me as leaches are flung from my body and given unto the darkness from where they came. Threats that challenged my faith, draped across my shoulders, carried as a yoke have been dissolved into the dust beneath my feet, as I leave behind the torrents that flooded throughout my life.
My Lord, I call to you to take my life into your hands, may my heart beat and throb with love and trust in you. Grant me courage Lord, to stand strong against the current, to waver not as floods of bitterness rise against your shield of forgiveness. My Lord it is in you that I trust, it is in your shadow that I seek shelter and it is you that I yearn to know.
You protect me from words of torment and the lashes of hardship that pound against my fragile flesh become trickles of sand to be swept from my life. My sight is set upon you, my Lord, as you journey toward the cross. The truth of my own heart cries out in joy to recognise the glory of your sacred face.
