'My help comes from the Lord'

I lift up my eyes to the mountains —
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
Need help?

Or rather: Who doesn't need help? Sometime, somewhere, somehow.

Personally, I need all the help I can get, every day. The struggles might change - health, family, work, even just getting from one place to another.

Have you ever had a struggle, seeking help? When I had my stroke, God helped me. During my recovery, my help came from the Lord. Every day, that help continues.

When you get help from people, is it always the help you thought you needed? I'm guessing the answer is no. Same is true here - God is indeed where your help comes from. Often delivered by humans. And God gives you the help he knows you need - just lift up your eyes to the mountains. Trust and accept that help.
