Look up! I love the Songs of Ascents. I had to sleep in this morning to battle a potential cold so wasn’t able to do my regular Bible reading routine. I hate that. I like routine, but life happens and human beings are not machines.
But God proved gracious as I sat in the car waiting for my daughter to return her graduation gown and collect her diploma. As soon as I started reading these psalms aloud, the eyes of my heart were directed toward the Father and I was drawn into prayer.
The Lord is your keeper – Psalm 121
To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! – Psalm 123
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. – Psalm 124
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. – Psalm 125
