The Lord is my strength and shield (Psalm 28:7; NLT).

He is my shield, and I take refuge in him (Psalm 144:2; NLT).

He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety (Psalm 18:2; NLT).

You, Lord, are a shield around me (Psalm 3:3; NLT).



Lord God,
The outward “personality”
I’ve built up
Since my childhood

Is nothing but a frail facade
That shields
My damaged core
As best it can.
