I Lift Up My Eyes to the Mountains {Scripture and a Snapshot}

One of the passages my children are memorizing for this year's Leadership Training for Christ Sword of the Spirit award is Psalm 121.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains -- 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 forever more.
I'm thankful that God surrounded me with mountains in all four directions. In fact, the picture above was taken less than a block from my house.

When I have tough days, I can look out a window and remember that my help comes from the Lord -- the one who made heaven and earth.

  1. I love this verse and what a gorgeous photo! I live among majestic mountains too and they always remind me of our great God. : )

    Visiting from the 'Sunday Stillness' blog hop.

  2. Lovely picture and inspiring passage. I've never heard of that competition, but I hope they are successful.

  3. I have loved that verse. But the photo .... that is just a beautiful pairing with the Scripture! I would be looking at those "hills" all day long. Stunning! Thank you for sharing that with us all. I visited this morning from Scripture & A Snapshot. Blessings!

  4. I look to the hills as well. . .a constant eye on the ultimate, eternal future God promises for all who love Him!

  5. Yes. I live in the Great Plains area, but was raised in the NW and mountain constantly in my face. LOVE THEM!!! I'm a "Rocky" person.... b/c the Lord is my Rock. He's my Helper. Love this. Thank you.

  6. Love this Scripture and the beautiful picture you've shared to go with it! Mountains of all kinds remind me to look to the Lord as my Rock.
