I Look to the Hills

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. 
                                           --Psalm 121:5-8

You can go to and search for Psalm 121.  The entire Psalm is a short, beautiful affirmation of God's presence.  Click on the picture to make it big and just enjoy the sunrise and in the pink/purple light behind Mt Rainier.  Spend a few minutes just thinking about this:

"Look to Me, and be saved...."   (- Isaiah 45:22)

Saved from what?  From what has God saved you?  I think we assume some eternal cosmic thing when we hear the words, "be saved," and while it is that, there is also a daily, even hourly or minute by minute saving going on -- look for those moments too: how God gets you through/saves you day to day.  Journal your answers to "look to Me, and be saved..." saving me from what? If you're of a mind to post your thoughts here under comments, you're welcome to do that.

Lord, you save us from something every minute of every day.  Help us rejoice for all 525,600 minutes each year that you walk alongside us.  In Christ's name, Amen.
