Where Does Our Help Come From?

**Just above Banff, AB ~ Photo taken in May 2009**

Psalm 121

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help?

My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel
shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
He shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out
and thy coming in
from this time forth,
and even for evermore.

~The Holy Bible~

I have most definitely felt His preserving power the past few weeks!

It's me ...Mavis said...

Wow... what a view... it looks just like a post card :)

Cindy ~ I am sure you have! God is so gracious to us, isn't He? I am glad you are on the mend! :)

Mavis ~ We were on the top of a mountain where we had a panoramic 360* view ~ when you go to Banff you must take the gondola up to this "lookout" point ~ AMAZING!!

Amen! Thanks for you sweet comments about our remodel! Yes, I'm addicted to color now. Can't wait to do the rest of the house as the budget allows. Have a wonderful Sabbath!

Camille said...

We memorized that psalm on our walks to church last year. I think I will refresh us all. (NIV) The pictures of the mountains are breathtaking.
I can tell by your blog you are an amazing mom. A mom committed to her Lord first, husband and children. I am so blessed to have met you..

Have a nice evening,

Camille said...

Dear Virginia ~ You are a sweet encourgement to me! Thank you for all your kind words. May the LORD be glorified in all that we do...HE is the ONE that enables us to do anything good at all!

God's Word is so rich and such a comfort...how wonderful that you have memorized this Psalm!

The mountains you see in this photo are from a trip we took driving across our province to Baff a year and a half ago. God's creation is MAGNIFICENT! :)

Blessings to you!
In His Love,
