For Keeps

psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills –

Where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to slip or be moved.

He who KEEPS you will not slumber.

{He who watches over}

He who KEEPS [His people] will not sleep.

The LORD is your KEEPER.

{the LORD watches over you}

The LORD is your shade on the right hand (the side not carrying a shield).

The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.

The LORD will KEEP you from all evil.

{the LORD will keep you, guard you from all harm}

He will KEEP {watch over} your life.

The LORD will KEEP {watch over/guard} your coming and going

from now until forevermore {for always…}.

The question:  What does it mean to be “kept”?

In awe of the Keeper…Jeanie

NOTE TO SELF:    I can see He is not sleeping – so I can!  Peacefully.  He is at work on my behalf.  Makes me start singing: You dance over me while I am unaware…He is KEEPING me
