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 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 forevermore.'

 Psalm 121
 
Psalm 121 is one of my favourite chapters in the Bible, I first came across it just before I started doing mission work. I was quite worried about a lot of things at that time - but after this chapter was given to me I never worried about my safety.
 
I truly believe that God has called me to be in Sierra Leone, I am only here because I believe that this is where God wants me to be......so, knowing that, I also know that He will keep me safe.

Reading this Psalm gives me great peace and comfort - knowing that the Lord is watching over me and protecting me gives me peace of mind.

At the time when a lot of people were leaving Sierra Leone because of Ebola I knew that it was right for me to be here. Of course, I take all the necessary precautions to keep myself safe......but not once have I considered leaving because of Ebola. I feel protected, I feel safe.
