Of Advent…6 Days Left: “Psalm 121” I Will Lift Up My Eyes…
Because my spirit weighs heavy and my soul is downcast, and fear of facing an unknown tomorrow is gripping my heart with fingers like needles, literally squeezing the breath out of me, I know what I have to do at times like these. And that is to reach out to The One I know will hold my hand and keep me from falling.
We each one of us have a place or someone we turn to for comfort, in times of troubles, but as for me, I turn for solace to my God, and the world is made right again!
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
He who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
He will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
