“Trust in God” Today’s 7 minute Reflection Devotion.
“I climb because I love the mountains,” Lygon said, “and I meet God there.” In January 2008, she died in an avalanche while climbing Little Bear Peak in southern Colorado with her brother, who survived.
Her parents discovered her journals. They were deeply moved by the intimacy of her walk with Christ. “Always a shining light for Him,” her mother said, “She experienced a depth and honesty in her relationship with the Lord, which even seasoned veterans of faith long to have.”
In her final journal entry, written from her tent 3 days before the avalanche, she said: “God is good, and He has a plan for our lives that is greater and more blessed than the lives we pick out for ourselves, and I am so thankful about that. Thank You, Lord, for bringing me this far and to this place. I leave the rest – my future – in those same hands and say thank You.” – Daily Bread.
God of Wonders – Third Day – Chris Tomlin –
Lord of all creation
Of Water, Earth and Sky
The Heavens are your Tabernacle
Glory to the Lord on high. …
… It’s early in the morning
I will celebrate the light
As I stumble in the darkness
I will call Your name by night.
King David trusted in the Lord throughout his journey through life.
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip –
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you –
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm –
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last
And our eternal home. – Watts
