Word of Encouragement

I was encouraged Sunday by the number of folks who told me they were fasting and praying for wisdom, and I am sure there are twice as many who just did not want to say anything. As we turn our face to the Lord, I am reminded of Psalm 121, “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. 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.” It is a great comfort to know my Lord is watching over my life, even the little things like waking up and going to sleep. This is the second great promise God gave me as I was fasting. He is watching over me, and Brenda, and Ashley, and the many I love who go thru so much in life, and yes, you. All I need do is look up, at any moment, and any place, under any circumstance, through all time, in joy and sorrow, celebration and grief. All I need do is look up.
