My Help

Psalms 121:1-2

“I lift up my eyes to the hills

Where does my strength come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

The Maker of heaven and earth.”

 

There’s an open air chapel called Pretty Place that sits on the side of the mountain just off Highway 276 at the state line between North and South Carolina.  The first line of this verse is carved into one of the overhead beams of this chapel that overlooks an incredible view of the Smokey Mountains.

 

I love this verse because it reminds me of that place and of those mountains that are a part of my western North Carolina roots.  I also hold onto this verse because it reminds me that, by myself, I am weak and helpless.  It is only through my relationship with God that I find the strength I need to sustain me.

 

Where does your strength come from?
