I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come?
Reflections by Annette Roux, Retired Pastoral Associate
"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2
There’s so much in this life we can start to feel anxious about, even when we know God’s truth and believe that He’s in control. It can still be a daily battle in our hearts, in our minds. When we just keep looking all around us, we can easily get defeated. Drained. Impatient. Cynical. We may find ourselves wrestling with worry. Fear might creep in. We lose our focus because we're so distracted on all the things that can never really give us strength and hope anyway. People won’t ever be the answer for our every need. Money, possessions, or success can’t ever satisfy the void deep inside that only God can fill. This world will never be free of all conflict. The government won’t ever fix all of our problems. It can’t. Because, no matter what we face in this life, God’s still on the throne.
Prayer: Christ, in receiving you, I receive who I am. Help me to be who I am called to be. Amen.
