While I’m not writing long blog posts right now, I have taken a shining to blogging a few of my favorite psalms. The first one was Psalm 23 published on June 5, 2016. I’d like to add a second one to that first one, and it is Psalm 121. This particular psalm was printed on a magnet that I kept on my refrigerator door during the year I lived and worked in Houston. So without further ado, here it is:
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out
And your coming in
From this time forth
And even. . .
My affordable housing search appears to be taking a upward turn after two plus years of looking for it. Perhaps in the not-too-distance future my hotel days will finally be behind me. And what a great day that will be, too!!!
King David certainly knew what he was writing about when he wrote many of the psalms found in the Book of Psalms, and while he did not write this particular psalm, he very well could have written it from his personal experiences of depending totally upon the Lord.
Enjoy the psalm . . .
And the song . . . .
