I will lift up my eyes to the hills–
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.Psalm 121:1-2
Spring is such a hopeful time of renewal. Daylight emerges early and lingers late. Fragrant blooms fill the air from blossoming trees. The staleness of winter has long gone.
Even the song bird’s tunes cheer the warm air and bing ease to the broken-heart. Everywhere we are reminded that God is renewing the earth, once again.
Yet, life continues to happen. Despite the gaiety of the joy that is around, sadness still lurks about. Illness comes, jobs are lost, finances dwindle, kids rebel, addiction prevail and death arrives into the lives of so many people.
It seems unfair that during such a great time of the year, “bad stuff” happens. Think about it. How can we be blessed by the miracle of spring and forget that God is there for us during all seasons of life? All one needs to do is lift their eyes to Him.
