I lift up my eyes to the hills—
from where will 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.
He who keeps Israel
will 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 will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time on and forevermore.
- Today’s reading is from the text designated as the Evening Psalm. I don’t want to throw off your new journaling routine already, but maybe save this journaling exercise for the end of day? If you can’t wait, think back to yesterday. Whatever you decide, I invite you to think about the phrase, “from where will my help come?” Did you even realize you needed help today? Did you look for it? In what aspect of your life do you need help the most? The writer of this Psalm believes that our help “comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.” What might it mean that we have a whole heaven and earth worth of help available to us? As you think about who you talked with in your interactions, what or who was most helpful for you today? As you close out your time of journaling, I invite you to thank God for that most special gift.
