Where Does Your Help Come From?

  • February 23, 2021 12:52 pm

Psalm 121 (NIV)
A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Covid lockdown weary? Revisiting this entry from several years ago.

Anyone needing some help with things?  Having a bad week, month, or year? Most of our home’s windows look out on some beautiful mountains.  I gaze at them quite often.  I think of this Psalm.  The mountains speak of His greatness. As majestic as they are, He was behind their creation.  And He watches over them, and me.  He never sleeps.  I need His help this month, this week.  And He is there. If the mountains split, or parted, He would be there. My help comes from the Lord.

Help us Lord, when we are tired, stressed, worn and weary. Help us to see the majestic mountains, instead of the mountains of problems. Your glory shines through that which you have created.  You are our very help.  Now and forevermore.

Church Online and a daily Bible Reading Plan

  • February 23, 2021 12:46 pm

Viewpoint Church:

https://www.viewpointchurch.org/

Author/pastor/speaker: Becky Tirabassi and husband Roger have a wonderful Sunday service which blesses me every Sunday morning. 10:00 Pacific time zone, or catch the archives. Enjoy the live chat, and grab your message outline before the service.

Read Through the Bible:

And Becky is right there with her daily Bible reading posts on Facebook and Instagram with her Change Your Life Daily Bible. You can join in her videos on social media and follow the reading plan by purchasing her Bible or using the PDF download plan on Viewpoint church’s page with your own Bible.

As the church physical buildings start to open, remember, there are always resources online for you to access. You may be ill, disabled, or have any number of reasons you cannot go to church, but you don’t have to look too far to find a church home on the web.

In the midst of all that is going on, never forget…

Quarantine, and more…..update!

  • July 2, 2020 2:59 pm

Hoping my readers are still out there somewhere, healthy and finding at least some ways to worship and be creative during these lockdown days. I plan to be back posting more soon. Please feel free to follow the links provided to some of my favorite church services online. I’m using the Change Your Life Daily Study Bible this year, but you can obtain the same outline without a Bible purchase. The pdf should be on the Viewpoint Church web site posted below.

If you are still lockdown and out of church, again I encourage you to find a good few places to watch online. Support you local church first, and then if you still need to find a church online may I suggest Viewpoint Church. Author, pastor, Becky Tirabassi and her husband Roger, are taking their church through the Bible in 2020. You can purchase the Change Your Life Daily Bible via her links or just download the pdf to follow the guide. Due to CA lockdown, the services are being held online now at 11 am Pacific. Everything is archived for later viewing. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate and respect their ministry. It’s simple, uncomplicated and built on prayer and the Word of God. I hope to see you there, or somewhere as we worship online.
