As part of my duties as a volunteer chaplain for a local police department, I was recently called to a home where a young lady had died in her sleep. As you can imagine, her family was distraught. She had just finished law school, just passed the Bar exam, but died before she was able to practice law. As I say with the mom, she kept asking me, “how am I supposed to go on?” I was reminded of this as I was reading today.
The first verse of Psalm 121 tells us, “121 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? 2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.”
As I sat with her, as I listened to her, I asked her one simple question — “do you believe in God?” I already knew the question from our conversation, but I asked it anyway. Her answer was a very quick and confident, “yes”. I reminded her that she would get through this difficult situation not by her own strength and might, but by the comfort and care of the Lord. Where does our help come from, “my help comes from the Lord”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
