A Song of Ascents

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber…The LORD is your keeper…he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. (Psalm 121)

In light of sorrow and mourning, one is able to read through the Word of God and worship. How befitting that, in light of the death of someone close to our family and our organization, we read of ascension – the hope that we all, as Christians, possess and are promised because of faith in our Savior, Christ Jesus.

Even in hardship, even in death, the LORD keeps us…our Creator God firmly holds the lives of his sons and daughters.

What a great promise, that in life and death, our help, our hope, is all secure in the hands of our God!
