I Will Be Your Shield

Hi Everyone,

I had another post that I was going to put up today--but a dear friend of mine sent me these words in an e-mail--and I couldn't resist posting them! They touched my heart in a really special and deep way--one of those "just what THE DOCTOR ordered things!) You should hear the song! it is beautiful--reminded me of "old-time" adult Christian Contemporary Music from 25 years ago somehow. The words are packed with TRUTH!!! We must not forget God's promises even in the midst of challenges.

All I know, as a result of my research, is that the words at least are written by Rachel Wissman. So, with great privilege of posting this, here are the words to "I Will Be Your Shield." May they bless you-----From God's perspective--to YOU!!!

I Will Be Your Shield

My child, are you discouraged

By the sorrows of the day?

Does it seem that life is crumbing,

The skies have turned to gray?

Don’t forget I gave you promises

To guide you every hour

In the moment of your heartbreak

Let me show you my great power


And I will be your shield

When the battle rages on

And I will be your light

When the way ahead is dark

I will be your strong tower

And guide you every hour

Just place your life

Completely in my hands

I know it won’t be easy

I never said it would,

But my grace will always be there

My plans for you are good!

Remember that your weaknesses

Are perfect in my sight

Only when you hand them to me

Can I turn them into might



And someday you will understand

Why I sent this trial

And someday you will see the end

And know it’s overcome

(Chorus (and key change))
