Psalm 121 My help comes from the Lord

Sunday, June 19, 2011

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
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.

As I prepare for my surgery on Wednesday June 22nd I came across this scripture and as I read it I could feel the Lords arms around me. I closed my eyes and I imagined my Jesus holding me, I imagined Jesus looking down on me wiping my tears away, I imagined Jesus gentle yet strong voice saying to me "Don't fear my daughter I am with you For this is why I came and died I love you with an everlasting love now and forevermore".

My Jesus..So faithful, so gentle, so good, so loving, so caring.. I just crumpled up in a ball with huge tears coming down my face because I could feel his love all around me. I could feel the warmth of his arms and I could feel his strength envelop me..He is my everything, he is all I need and he is my Savior!!! The Joy of the Lord truly is my strength as I go through this and I am humbly honored to be called his child.

I came across a song by a group called The Museum and their song is entitled My help comes from the Lord..I couldnt say it any better.

When sorrows come and hope seems gone
You're the rock I rest upon
When waters rise and I can't breathe
You're the love that rescues me
Out of the darkness
It lifts up my eyes
Unto the hills I feel my faith rise

Maker of heaven
Giver of life
You are my strength, my song in the night
My refuge, my shelter, now and forevermore
My help comes from the Lord

When I'm broken, scarred by sin
Death gives way to life again
When I suffer, when I'm bound
In You I'm free, In You I'm found

Out of the darkness
It lifts up my eyes
Unto the hills I feel my faith rise

Maker of heaven
Giver of life
You are my strength, my song in the night
My refuge, my shelter, now and forevermore
My help comes from the Lord

    Hey Girl, wonderful blog. I was praising God today as for some reason I started to feel badly, a dark mood came over me. I thought about what you said to me on the phone so long ago now. Praise God and you will feel better. Because of you and God working through you I have done this and have told other people to do this as well.

    Today for the first time besides praising God by thanking him for some of the things in my life I put on a christian CD and sang some songs to God. I thought about the words and I thought about God entering my heart and loving me and helping me through the dark feelings I felt inside of me. Griff my mood improved so much and the rest of my day was so much better. I know that it was God who did it. I am grateful for you in so many ways. I can't imagine not having you as a friend. I thank God for you. emoticon

    I am so very thankful to know you as a friend and sister in JESUS!! I know, within my spirit, GOD has many huge plans for you and your life! I receive much when I chat with you, (in the spiritual realm),,,so I am certain HE has your back throughout this ordeal!

    HE shall use you as a strong witness of HIS ALMIGHTY P O W E R, of HIS declaration to many Drs. and nurses, as well as friends and are about to make medical history! GOD is speaking to me as I write this, I am not thinking about it, it is flowing....I will be lifting you up in prayer every day and on the surgery day!

    You are a strong, courageous, and willing vessel that HE is able to use mightily, because you have allowed HIM to do so!! Rest assured, my fellow prayer warrior, you will be rewarded,more than you can imagine, for your FAITH and your continued stand on HIS word!! You will have a clean bill of health!!!

    This blog is awesome! I know the Lord God is the reason for everything that happens. It is through him that I have the strength to carry on each day and to stick to my change of lifestyle in order to lose weight. His love and constant care is all around us. I pray every day for him to give me the strength to face these challenges and conquer them and as usual he does just that! I owe everything I have and everything I am to my savior and protector.

    All our help comes only from the Lord. Who else is there to help us? Certainly not Satan! A friend or a loved one; they were sent by God. Let's give praise and thanksgiving to God. In His Love, Vic.
