Psalms 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 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;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

I heard this in a song today by Susan Ashton and it was beautiful. I wish I could find a way to share it on here. I have it on my computer and I'm listening to it now.

It applies in so many ways but today this song and this verse is comforting me in the midst of the choas of a messy house, laundry on the couch, a teething 15 month old with a cold who won't nap and a host of other things.

There is nothing I can't do when I remember from where my help comes. There is nothing that will happen to me, nothing that touches my life without touching the hand of God first. He is the Maker of the Heaven and the Earth...and HE watches over my life too? My little life? Wow!
