Look to the Lord

 

As I asked God to put something on my heart today, in the middle of my grumpiness and frumpiness, my mind a blank-slate mirror of the blank page, I turned on some praise and worship music to lift my soul and turn my thoughts to praise. 

After I played only a couple of songs on YouTube, I clicked on a video of a Selah song I didn’t recognize, (which turned out to be a Whitney Houston song,) with an amazing testimony at the beginning. The singer’s testimony spoke to me, and the message of the song was very timely. “Who on earth can I turn to? I look to you, I look to you. After all my strength is gone, in you I can be strong.” 

This reminded me of Psalm 121: 

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.

Truly, I needed to hear this today. This Bible passage, her testimony, and her performance of this beautiful song–which is one of the most beautiful things I’ve heard in a long while. I’m certain that someone else needs to hear this word of encouragement today.

Won’t you take the time to listen to this testimony and song? I pray that it blesses you deeply. God bless you.
