Psalm 121:1-2...



Sometimes life gets just plain overwhelming.
About the time you think you're slipping under the muck and mire in the slough of despair for the last time,
 take a look at something majestic...
a mountain,
the sea,
an eagle soaring in the sky,
why even a newborn baby is quite a wonder to behold.
Then quiet your emotions long enough to remember, that the One Who created all this wonder,
is still ruling on the throne of this universe
Look up, friend, look up.


still following, 



                                                                         
                                                                    Scripture and Snapshot

    When I looked at Miunt Fuji, I thought that life sometimes feels smothered by so much snow! But as you have said, let us just keep on looking up! Have a great weekend with your family, dear friend.
    Much love XX

  2. I love this! It's all about reminding ourselves with perspective, isn't it? No matter how "big" the mess is, there is always something right at hand to remind us how much bigger our God is.

    I needed that reminder today.

    1. It took me quite a while to figure out that this verse meant to look at creation and remember the Creator. For me, looking at the sea does the trick every time...if He can control the power of the waves, He can handle me and my life.

  8. Hi Elizabeth! To quiet the emotions is the real trick isn't it? My sister lives in Colorado, your image looks like the beauty there.
