Hi from the central coast of California. This is Sherry Kyle with a word of encouragment for you.
“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 love this verse. It reminds me of the chorus to the children’s song:
“The joy of the Lord is my strength.”
Do you remember singing that song in Sunday School when you were a child? For those of you who didn’t grow up in a Christian home, those eight words are repeated four times in a simple melody. Simple words with great impact!
