This morning in church a guest speaker preached a sermon entitled "Have You Been Overwhelmed Lately?" on the text of Psalm 121. It was a good sermon, the kind where I actually wanted to listen to every word.
(Maybe in part because I have been really overwhelmed lately by a lot of things that feel outside of my control.)
Maybe that Psalm will be encouraging to you, today, too. Life, after all, can get pretty overwhelming for anyone at times.
A Song of Ascents.
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is your keeper;
The LORD is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
