where does my help come from?

Gros Piton 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. - Psalm 121:1-2

I've always loved Psalm 121. It's a simple reminder that God is sovereign and He loves me.

One of the best applications of that Psalm was a message I listened to from Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. It was a part of a great series they did on "Christian Atheism"- ways that our belief in God doesn't show through our lives.

I began listening to this message thinking I didn't worry as much as I used to- that I really had this one under control. Then the speaker talked about trying to control worry with things like workaholism or perfectionism.

Oh. He got me there.

Definitely worth a listen.
