I lift my eyes!

Psalm 121 ~ I lift my eyes to the hills~where does my help come from?  My help comes for the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip~he who watches over you will not slumber; 
Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you~ the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all harm~he will watch over your life; 
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

It is so true!  I love this Psalm and this morning sitting on my porch looking at His Word and honestly sharing with the LORD my feelings, the tears began to flow when I looked out at His creation surrounding me whether it was the mountains, the animals, the water, even myself He is beyond our understanding and I thank Him for being just that Big!

I don't have to understand; I just have to believe His Word and I do.  I feel Him so much here and I poured my heart out that it hurt my soul that I allow myself when I am in my everyday life at home that I forget to be so intense with spending time with Him.  I make time, but I am not so aware.  It's like I know He is surrounding me and answering my prayers, but it is like I heard on the Message station today I go to the answering machine and punch Next Message.  

It was my prayer that I stay alert to Him daily.  I want to ask first thing every morning Lord make me aware of your desires for the day and please don't let me miss a moment with you!  I fail Lord, but please help me to become more and more like Jesus.  Show me the path and help me put one foot in front of the other.

Indeed, I lift my eyes and my help to get through each day comes from Our Lord.

Sweet blessings,
