I Lift My Eyes Up to the Mountains
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 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; 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 all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121
This past weekend I went skiing with my sister in Vail, Colorado. I have skied many other places but skiing here has always been a dream of mine. Therefore, when my sister found out that she was going to move out there for a few months to do a clinical for her last semester of physical therapy school, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to make this dream a reality. The scenery was far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. When I first got off of the ski lift at the top of an over 11, 000 foot mountain I was utterly amazed. Mountains continued in the distance as far as my eyes could see. When you take in a view that powerful and majestic you cannot help but think about how incredible God is to be able to create such a beautiful masterpiece. It reminded me that if the God in whom we believe can create this than God can take care of us. What worries are we carrying around with us that we need to let go of and give to God?
