My Help

I will lift my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1-2

It's been a rough couple of weeks. I was hit hard by a nasty flu bug and was down for about 2 weeks. Winter has been long and I've often felt isolated and alone here in the mountains. It doesn't take long for discouragement to set in when you are sick and spending a lot of time by yourself.  

I was listening to music one night while I was laying in bed unable to sleep and Bebo Norman's song, I Will Lift my Eyes, came on. I love that song!  It was just what I needed. It reminded  me that my help is in the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. I thought about how each time I look out my window I see hills and more hills. From that night on when depression loomed over me while I was sick, I would look out the window and look to the hills. I felt encouraged as I remembered where my help came from. 

I love living in the mountains. What a blessing to have a visual reminder each time I look outside and see the hills that God is my help. Life is hard and it's so easy to grow discouraged, but often just a simple verse of scripture is all we need to get our minds focused on God, the source of all our comfort and help.
