This week I've taken a great deal Comfort from Psalm 121. We are studying this in our Bible study. We are working on Beth Moore's study of the Psalms of Ascent.
I lift my eyes to the hills where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip he who watches over you will not slumber indeed he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you the Lord is your shade at your right hand, the sun will not harm you by day nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from harm- he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch your coming and going both now and forever more.
Over the next several weeks both of my children, Kate and Adam, will be going through their own journeys. Kate is taking the plunge and purchasing her first car. And Adam will be moving to California. After studying this Psalm over the last week I have really tried to keep the focus on the fact that the Lord, our God, will be watching over my children. I wish it were easy. It's not.
Life is Truly about change and journeys. I pray this week, that you will have comfort in your journeys.
Please keep me in your prayers as well as I help my children with their journeys.
