I lift up my eyes to the hills-
   where does my help come from?
My help comes from 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.

So many things in this life involve looking down…….

reading, texting, computer work, gardening, farming, dusting, laundry, grading papers……..

But I love how even in these daily, downward-focused projects, God seems to slip in and remind us that only by looking up will we truly find Him.

Lift your eyes today even as you are looking down.

Your help will be found there as you remember who made the heavens and the earth.

I love that in looking up I am reminded of Him who finds His pleasure in looking down on us,

never slumbering or sleeping,

He keeps our feet from slipping,

watching us,

shading us,

in our coming and going

both now and forevermore.
