TUESDAY, November 27

Psalm 121 I lift up my eyes to the hills; from where is my help to come? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved, and he who watches over you will not fall asleep. Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep; the Lord himself watches over you; the Lord is your shade at your right hand, so that the sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; it is he who shall keep you safe. The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in, from this time forth for evermore.

The tall peaks and deep valleys of Appalachia dominated my early life. Their beauty has never left me, even as I moved away from the mountains as an adult. Psalm 121 always draws me back to those early years, to God’s presence on the mountaintop, and in the valleys—always and everywhere, no matter where I go.

MOVING FORWARD: Sit outside for a bit today. Read Psalm 121 while you’re out there.
