I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:1-2 ESV)
I lift my eyes up to the heavens
Up to the Lord over all the earth
And I know my God is with me
(lyrics from Faithful and True by Alabaster Grace)
Today we begin sharing one of our songs, Faithful and True, from our first EP self-titled, Alabaster Grace.
Faithful and True has a theme that fits with today's scripture verse: when we need help, we can trust in God to help us. It's a simple concept to know in our heads, but a difficult one to internalize in our hearts and practice continually.
Many times we coast through life depending upon our own abilities to take care of everything. When we hit a wall and are unable to break through, however, we cry out to God as a last resort.
Even now, some of us are facing events and circumstances that seem overwhelming. So now is our chance to lift our eyes up to the One who WILL help us. At times such as this, we need to keep our eyes on Him, and not our problems.
Father, we lift our eyes up to You for everything and continually rely on You to provide our needs, whatever they may be. Amen.
"The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, 'O God, forgive me,' or 'Help me.'” - Billy Graham
