I raise my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Have you ever felt like you just needed help, but no one was there to help you? Have you ever been so overwhelmed with things to do that you just knew you could not do it all alone? Welcome to my world! I know many of you feel this way as widows, too.
God knows every demand that is made on you and all the things that need your attention. He is your very present help in times of trouble, and He is there with you to help you do whatever you need to do. Your help is the Maker of heaven and earth, and there is no job or task too great for Him. Sometimes, He will bring the help you need in the form of another person, and sometimes He may just help you focus on priorities while He takes care of the rest. The key is letting Him have control of your life so He can work out all the details you are too busy to handle at the moment.
Know for certain today that you do have help, and He will never leave you nor forsake you (Heb. 13:5). You don’t have to carry your burdens alone, so surrender whatever you need done to God. He is for you, and nothing can stand against you (Rom. 8:31). He will work all things together for your good and His glory (Rom. 8:28). Stay close to your Maker in prayer, casting every burden on Him because He cares for you (1Peter 5:7).
Have a blessed day!
