Need Help?

I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2

My help comes from the maker of heaven and earth! Think about that a minute.

I confess, I have a hard time asking others for help. Can you relate? These two verses overwhelmed me today. God, the creator of heaven and earth, wants to help me. He has chosen to be available to help me in everything I do.

  • Volunteer responsibilities… he keeps me focused on his plans.
  • Housework and parenting… he helps me prioritize and empathize.
  • Unhealthy thought patterns… he is right there to redirect.
  • Need encouragement… he sends a friend, an email, or a scripture.

Do you need help today? Lift your eyes not to the hills but to the one who created the hills.

So true! It is hard to ask for help even from God. We women think we can do it all! Thanks for the reminder that we can't.

the mission:
PROCLAIM the good news; HEAL the sick and oppressed; BRING JUSTICE
~ Luke 4:16-20

Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing (John 14:12)
~ Jesus
