Something that sounded like firecrackers roused Joanne from sleep. Glass shattered. Wishing she didn’t live alone, she got up to see what was going on. The dark streets were empty and the house seemed to be okay—then she saw the broken mirror.

Investigators found a bullet only a half-inch from the gas line. If it had struck the line, she probably wouldn’t have made it out alive. Later they discovered it was a stray bullet from nearby apartments, but Joanne was afraid to be at home. She prayed for peace, and once the glass was cleaned up, her heart calmed.

Psalm 121 is a reminder for us to look to God in times of trouble. Here, we see that we can have peace and calm because our “help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth” (v. 2). The God who created the universe helps and watches over us (v. 3)—even while we sleep—but He Himself never sleeps (v. 4). He watches over us day and night (v. 6) “both now and forevermore” (v.8).

No matter what kind of situations we find ourselves in, God sees. And He’s waiting for us to turn to Him. When we do, our circumstances may not always change, but He’s promised His peace in the midst of it all.

In the chaos and it was written by Julie Schwab something that sounded like firecrackers roused Joanne from sleep glass shattered, wishing she didn't let alone, she got up to see what was going on the dark streets were empty and the house seemed to be okay.

Then she saw the broken mirror. Investigators found a bullet only 1/2 inch from the gas line if it had struck the line she probably wouldn't have made it out alive.

Later they discovered it was a stray bullet from nearby apartments. But now Joanne was afraid to be at home. She prayed for peace and once the glass was cleaned up her heart combed Psalm 121 is a reminder for us to look to God.

In times of trouble.

Here we see that we can have peace and calm because our help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth that God who created the universe helps and watches over us even while we sleep, but he himself never sleeps.

He watches over us day and night, both now and forever more. No matter what kind of situations we find ourselves in God sees and is waiting for us to turn to him when we do our circumstances may not always change but she's promised his peace in the midst of it all. Today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is Psalm 121 I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from my help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip. He who watches over you will not slumber.

Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you. The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm. He will watch over your life.

The Lord will watch over your coming and going, both now and forever more. Let's pray dear God, our help comes from you when we are facing difficult circumstances. Thank you for filling us with peace and giving us freedom from fear when life seems out of control. Help us to rest in the knowledge that you want always in control.

Thank you Lord it's in Jesus name we pray.

Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
