For my blog today, I wanted to share my post from Beloved Women Ministry. The post appears below, and here is the link to the original post: https://www.belovedwomen.org/a-place-in-the-mountains/
READ: “I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there?” (Psalm 121:1 NLT)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Some people find peace by visiting the beach. Other people look for solace by spending time on the lake. We find renewal when I go up into the mountains. I love to spend time in the snow-capped peaks while breathing in the crisp, fresh air.
I picture David writing this Psalm as he gazes upon the jagged ridges surrounding him. Like me, he seems to find peace in this setting. The majesty and strength of the mountains remind us of God’s mighty power. The unchanging peaks recap for us that our God is also never changing.
From David’s day until the present, many people gazed up at the mountains and pondered the same question: “Where does my help come from today?” We find the answer in the next verse in Psalm 121:2: “My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth” (ESV).“Where does my help come from today?” We find the answer in the next verse in Psalm 121:2: “My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth” (ESV).

Our support comes from the Lord, the One who made the mountains. Next time you see a cliff, remember that our Lord will always help you.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for being the mountain we can run to in times of trouble. Thank You for nature which surrounds us to remind us of You. Help us to look to you when we face trials and tribulations. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.

This is great encouragement for today!
Thanks and God bless.
I love knowing we can lean on God and ask for His help in every situation. He is with us always.
Thank goodness for His faithfulness. God bless
Yes! It is a HUGE comfort for me to know my help comes from the Lord. All I have to do is rest in Him.
Me too. Thanks and God bless.
This post resonates with me. As a native coloradan, the mountains are one of my favorite places to be, especially when I’m seeking peace. Consequently, that’s been one of my favorite psalms since I discovered it, the year I met Jesus. There was a beautiful song we’re sang in my first church with the words of the psalm; I cannot sleep tonight and am going to search for it. God’s peace and blessings to you!
Thanks so much Candice. I hope you find rest and the song. God bless.
I love living in central Pennsylvania where mountains surround me. Great post. God bless!
Thanks Nancy. I love the mountains but don’t have any nearby. God bless.
I love going to the mountains for refreshing and peace too, Yvonne. When I think about my help coming from God, it makes me want to shout!
Hallelujah! Shout it out to the Lord. Thanks and God bless Karen.
Our help comes from the Lord. A needed reminder in times of change! My husband retires next week. Your blog today fit glove in hand with another one I also read. I think Jesus is trying to tell me something – eyes on Jesus. Our help comes from him!
How exciting and scary all at the same time. I retired almost 2 years ago and my husband retired in March. Lots of changes but it has been wonderful so far because God is with us. I will be praying. Thanks Melinda and God bless.
We’re thinking we’ll pause and wait on the Lord until we’re sure how he wants us to proceed. We have family, ministry, and other goals we want to pursue, but the hows and whens, we have no idea. Plus, my husband needs some serious rest. His hours have been 6 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. for the last two years.
Yes, rest is so important before you see what God has planned and schedule some fun too.
I’m so thankful we serve a God who never changes!
Me too. Thanks Emily and God bless.
I love how you helped me imagine myself in the majestic mountains and then reminded me of the One who made those mountains. What strength for our souls, when we turn to Him. Wonderful post!
Thanks Melissa. God really speaks to me through nature. It is were He gives me rest and strength. God bless.
I favor the mountains, too, though it’s not hard to see His glory in any of His creation when we remember to look for His help.
You are so correct, God is visible in all of nature. Thanks Beth and God bless.
Thank you Sister for the encouragement and reminder about the Lord being there for us. God Bless
You are welcome Stephen and God bless
I have always loved this Psalm. It is an encouragement to me in those difficult days that I experience. Thank you, Yvonne. 🙂
