A psalm that’s stayed with me

Psalm 121 has been a comfort and a guide to me for a long time. 

Many years ago when I was in college, I was going through very difficult challenges with my health and a relationship. While I was taking a long walk one day, the first verse of Psalm 121 came distinctly to thought: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” It was so clear to me that to “lift up mine eyes” meant I needed to see things from a higher—a more spiritual—perspective. And looking “unto the hills” meant my thought could go to the spiritual height where the Mind of Christ is perceived and understood through spiritual sense, and that is my best help.
