A Word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Monday, January 20, 2020.
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
I learned how to swim very late in life. It was one of those things that I just never got around to. Then I made a decision, I was getting too old to not know how to swim. So I went and signed up for lessons. I figured that I would be in a class with a bunch of adults that also were learning how to swim. Boy was I wrong. On my first day of class I looked around and noticed that as the only person over four and a half feet tall in the class, it was possible that this was not an adult class. Taking pity on me, the people at the complex pulled me out of the class and gave me a personal instructor for the six weeks of the class thus saving my ego major denting.
All was going well with my swim classes until one day when everything went wrong. I was leaving the aquatics facility and stepped off a curb. The curb was a little higher than I thought and I came down in the side of my foot twisting my ankle. There I was lying on the ground as people walked by looking down at the guy on the ground. I hoped someone would reach out a hand to at least help me to my feet, but no such luck. So I figured out a way to pull myself up on the back of a pickup and hobbled my way back to my car. I was stunned that nobody lifted a hand to help me out when I had fallen.
Friends, there will be times in life when we will fall and not be able to get up. We will look around for people to reach out a hand, or to give us a push, and there will be nobody there. It is in those moments that you have to look up to the Lord. While people may not always help you up, you can always expect help from the Lord. The lord will always reach out a hand or put something, or an unexpected someone in place to help you back to your feet. So don’t ever think there is nobody there to help you. Look up and call on the Lord, knowing that help is always on the way.
