"My Buckler"

I was reading in Psalms yesterday and I came across this verse and it was a good reminder to me of what my God is.

Psalm 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

I got out our Strongs Concordence and I looked up the word "buckler".....I was interested in what all the word meant. When I got to reading I just smiled to myself.
The word buckler means- A protector, a sheild.
There have been times that God has protected us from car wrecks just by making us have to run back in the house to grab something we forgot. There was one time that we thought that Sonic had forgotten Momma's chicken sandwich, so we pulled over to check and see if it was there....it was! When we were on the way home we came upon a 3 car wreck that had just happened prior to us getting to that point. God allowed us to check for a sandwich that had been there so that we could be spared from a really bad wreck. I can't thank God enough that he is my protector!!
I'm glad that he is my sheild too! He had sheilded me from many things through the years. I know that there had to be some bad stuff headed my way, but God allowed me to be sheilded from them. He had also sheilded me from the world as well. Because of Him I am not in this world getting into a lot of trouble and messing up my life. I thank God for being my protector and sheild!!!

I know that it was not much but I just wanted to put that on here.

Also I know that I have not been on here a lot, I am gonna try to post more on here. I guess that I just got discouraged because I was not getting many comments. I have been reminded though that not everybody comments and that you never know who may be reading your posts. So as of right now......I'm back!!!

I am glad you are back. Again you put a good spiritual post up. The best way to put posts up is by using your devotions. I have been a little discouraged lately with my blog also. But remember as long as you have one reader and it helps them then you are being a blessing. I am so glad that God is my buckler I too have many instances where he has protected me and shielded me. Good post!

Don't stop posting!! The reason why I haven't been commenting is that there's been several times when I've tried to load your page, it wouldn't come up like the others and it would be sooooooooo slow. I don't know what was wrong with it.
Hope to see you in a few weeks!
Lots of Love,
