“For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, how blessed is the man who trusts in Thee!” Psalm 84:11-12
Early this morning, I got up from the night’s rest
and stole quietly out to find day at its best.
It renewed and inspired to greet God’s morning sun,
and it spoke of His glory before my day had begun.
I thought of this verse, how He’s a sun and a shield;
it’s in looking to Him that I’m guarded and healed.
He gives grace and glory–all good things are mine–
I just “receive” from His bountiful source of “Son” shine.
P. A. Oltrogge
