Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
Even as we hope in You.
~ Psalm 33:20-22
This was the verse that Bret and I chose to use for our wedding and all the events surrounding it. One of the things that I have loved about these verses is that our faithful Lord continues to use it in our hearts and our marriage. He uses this passage to remind me that He is the faithful, sovereign, wise God, and that I wait only for Him. My Almighty Father reminds me that He is my help and my shield; He upholds me and protects me. What a comfort that is to me in hard times, and what an encouragment in the good ones. The Holy God is my hope!
