Peace for my weary soul

I lift up my eyes to the hills.  From where does my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  Ps. 121:1-2

Just when I think I can't go on any longer, God steps in and upholds me!  He sustains me and gives me rest and comfort for my weary soul.

We have such an amazing God and I often forget that until a trial comes my way and I am reminded of why it is I study His word and pursue my God intimately.  It's because in the midst of great pain and anguish He reveals Himself in ways I would never have imagined.  He reminds me that He is the One who is in control. He is the orchestrator of all things.  He reminds that no matter the outcome, I am in his loving arms and He will sustain me. 

We have a GREAT GOD!
