1I lift my eyes to the mountains-
where does my help come from?
2My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1, 2)
Happy Mid-week my friends! I had a full day yesterday. Got a post out to y’all, spent some time in the Word, cut the lawn, took the kids to the pool, did my work out, and completed a writing assignment for a friend. It was a great day off. And this morning, I caught up to the Old Testament reading and decided to crush the rest of Psalms. I have some verses to share with y’all over the next few days. Might even get a five day streak on my WordPress app.
The verses above are those Hobby-Lobby-wall-art legendary verses. They are some of my favorites, two sentences to commit to memory and to your heart. When you are down and out, where do you get your help from? Lift your eyes to the heavens and find your help and your hope in Jesus and God alone, and He will bring you salvation every time. Help is always on the way. It may not come in the moment you want it to, because it is always in God’s timing, but keep faith and know, God will always provide a way.
As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to share my favorite track from my new favorite album of 2021. Crowder has released another amazing album. I think I listened to it at least five times yesterday alone. At just 41 minutes, it’s a quick album for all 12 tracks, but they have such a magnificent range of sound, so far, it is hard to grow tired of this collection. Crowder had led off with the up-beat, fun country-twang of “Good God Almighty” and “Milk & Honey,” but he also has many worship-song-ready-hits like “Sweet Jesus,” and “God Really Loves Us.” Those two tracks feature the multi-talented Maverick City Music and the deep crooning of Dante Bowe. “Glory, Glory (God is Able)” sounds like an old Gospel hit from the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” But my favorite is this banger below, featuring Hulvey. Give it a listen to hear the wide range of Crowder on a single brilliant album.
