Psalm 34:4,5 [ESV] I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. 5 Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.
Psalm 34:4,5 [Message] God met me more than halfway, he freed me from my anxious fears 5 Look at him; give him your warmest smile. Never hide your feelings from him.
“all my fears” – really? I’m not even sure that I can honestly name them.
but the thought of bringing them to God – brightens my day.
“never be ashamed” that will make anybody smile.
teach me to seek You more often and to trust You with abandon.
change my outlook on life as I grow more and more honest with You about my life.
Bring the smiles, the radiance!
