No Slumber

today's reading.
Psalms 121    I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?...

think about it.
When you need help, where do you usually turn first? The Lord here is described as your keeper; what does He "keep" (120:3-8)? How have you experienced the Lord "keeping" you?

the blog.
I love when I read a passage that I've read many times before and something new jumps off the page at me. Well, that's exactly what happened today when I read Psalm 121. This is such an encouraging passage to begin with, but when I got to verses 3 and 4 I had one of those "light bulb" moments. Why? Because the God of the universe cares so much about us that He never sleeps or slumbers. "He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep."

So take a couple of minutes and really think about God being our Helper and that He never takes a break from that role. How amazing is that?!? How will this impact you going forward? Tami W.
