LifeLines #1

Feeling depressed, anxious or stressed?  

LifeLines offers biblical wisdom as a source of HOPE for today and tomorrow.



I lift up my eyes to the mountains - where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lordthe Maker of heaven and earth. - Psalm 121:1-2

Deep within the valleys of life it is easy to become overwhelmed by your surroundings when you are unable to see beyond your immediate circumstances.  Yet, when you lift your eyes above the horizon you see the heights of the mountains emerging out of the valley as a symbol of God's presence and power.  It was on a mountain that Moses encountered the presence of God, empowering him for the demands of leadership.  It was on a mountain that Elijah experienced the power of God, restoring him from a deep state of depression.  It was on a mountain that Jesus manifested both the presence and power of God, strengthening His disciples for the road of suffering ahead.  Lifting your eyes towards the divine source of help will give you a vision of hope that will reveal the same presence and power of God into your circumstances.
