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.
This Psalm really touches my heart. Today I am going to Stillwater for my first round of testing for learning disabilities. I have struggled most of my student career, and have had a lot of difficulty having my voice heard that I need some help. During these times, I have also just secluded myself and ask the Lord to step in and help in some way. Finally, after many years of prayer and personal struggle, a Professor at Phillips who I believe was lead by God to talk to me about my difficulties. Asked me about if I struggled and then it was thorough our dialog that she was able to help me get in touch with the right people to get testing.
Today I will rejoice and give thanks to the Lord who has been watching over me all this time. How else can you explain the fact that I am working on my graduate degree when I had teachers in my childhood that did not know and would let know that I may not to be able to pass high school. Hard words to hear and witness but God picks people you would never image to lead his people. Look at Moses! This is where lately I have been keeping my hope, when things have not been as easy as I know they could be. I pray for those who are casted aside because of learning disabilities. I also give thanks for those people who have helped me get where I am today. Then I give all thanks giving for God who has never given up on me to mold me into the person he needs me to be to do the work he has for me to do.
