Never alone.

Monday night.

I lift up my eyes to the hills – from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.

He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade at your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in
from this time on and forevermore.

– Psalm 121:1-8

One Response to Never alone.

    I love this Psalm. In second grade we had to memorize it. It made so much sense to me since I grew up in the North Georgia Mountians. The horizon was full of hills and I remember standing on the top of the slide on the playground and seeing mountains as far as I could see. I knew God was out there. As soon as my friends and I were old enough to ride our bikes out of the neighborhood we would ride over to our church. From the third floor Sunday School rooms we could see the most beautiful sunsets over the mountains and we would often say this Psalm. One time when we were all home from college we went to the church and watched the sunset. It was hard being apart from each other that first year of college and we affirmed our kinship with the promise at the end that God would take care of our goings and comings while we were away. There is great comfort in so many of the Psalms but my personal history with this one makes it one of my most favorites. Thank you for bringing it into my day today.
