“But you, O Lord, are a shield that surrounds me. You are my glory. You hold my head high.” Psalm 3:3 (GW)
Cast down, cast aside, cast off, it doesn’t matter. There is never a shortage of things in life that want to force your eyes and your head down—shame, guilt, mistakes made, pain, regrets. Yet into the midst of all of this, as only a true Saviour can do, Jesus comes. He is the Lover of your soul, the One who sees you as you truly are, even when no one will.
He will take you in His arms, and placing His hand under your chin, beckon you to look up into the eyes of mercy deep, and grace freely given. To look up into a depth of love you have never known before, and find complete acceptance and belonging there.
Look up into the eyes of compassion and understanding, look up, chosen child of God, into the face of the One Who knows who you are, and loves you exactly as you are.
When everything, and everyone, wants to push you down, put your trust in Jesus. He will cover you in His glory, heal you in His grace, and lift you up to see as He sees. In seeing, you will be free.
