What Keeps Me Going This Week: Psalm 121:5-6

What Keeps Me Going This Week: Psalm 121:5-6 February 2, 2013

When life is tough — or even when it’s not — I’ve found comfort in the Bible. My favorite parts change from month to month, week to week, or even day to day.  Honestly, I should read it more than I do, because I’ve also found that life is better when I hang on to its promises and truth.

Here’s the verse that’s speaking to me right now, Psalm 121:5-6.

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.

I love this picture of God as our protector.  Friends, we can trust him to protect our children as well.  And that is such good news!

This week, what verses help you trust in God?

    God’s word is not a seasonal thing but a bread and water for the spiritual life every day, moment of our lives. We can never live according to His plans if we put His Holy Words aside for a day. I hope you will commit to your relationship with God as #1 priority.

    What keeps me going is the thought of maybe seeing Bristol Palin in a swimsuit this summer.

  • Bristol, I so enjoy your blog, photos, and family updates. ‘Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your hear.’ Psalm 37:4.

    In Psalm 149, we see a terrific picture of both the purpose and priorities of worship:

    1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
    2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
    3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
    4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
    5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
    6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
    7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
    8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
    9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

    It is well with my soul:
