I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills

Jenni and I spent the last week of April driving around the Highlands of Scotland in a campervan. The weather was very kind to us and the scenery was quite amazing. Driving from Glasgow to the Isle of Skye and back we had to pass many spectacular peaks like the one in the photo above. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life and getting closer to nature in a part of the world that is so unspoilt was a tremendous privilege. I was reminded of these verses from Psalm 121:

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heaven and earth.”

How wonderful to think that our loving heavenly Father, the one who created the beautiful world in which we live, cares for each one of us as individuals and is ready to offer help to us in our daily lives.

Of course you do not have to go all the way to Scotland to see God’s wonderful creation. We should all look around us each day and see what we can thank God for and when we need help let us be willing to reach out and ask our God to help us.
