"I lift up my eyes to the hills~
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
the Maker of Heaven and earth.
Psalm 121: 1,2
This past week I read a book by Charla Pereau entitled, "Charla's Children". It follows Charla and her husband's journey in founding an orphanage and mission center in Mexico and how God guided and directed them throughout this unique adventure in faithful living. It was very inspirational to read all the daily miracles that occurred when they lived by faith believing God would help them to fulfill His plan for their lives, and provide for the orphans. They have not been disappointed!
This book came to mind when I was reading a quote by Christian Psychiatrist, Paul Tournier,where he spoke about living in a climate of faith. These powerful words have taken up residence in my mind since I first read them. Tournier wrote that after years of working in therapy with people who struggle with a variety of problems, he has come to realize that a climate of faith provides a new perspective and opportunity for healing. This occurs, he says, when we rely on God's grace and love for His children instead of just human solutions. The Bible certainly tells us the same thing. Among other scriptures, Psalm 121 says it clearly. Where does our help come from? Our help comes from the Lord!
No matter the problem or the circumstances...big or small, God is in the details of our lives and with His deep love and abiding grace for His children and our willingness to live in a climate of faith ~ all will be well!
