Moved to Worship

Moved to Worship

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2)

Those verses took on new meaning for me as I spent the last ten days in Nepal, gazing at the beautiful Himalayan mountain ranges, including an up-close look at Mount Everest. My response every time I looked at the mountains was one of worship, wanting to fall to my knees in light of our great Creator and His breathtaking creation.

I taught at a women’s conference there, and I pointed to the mountains outside our windows as a reminder to them (and us) that our help comes from the LORD. And when they look at those mountains, look to Him for strength when life seems out of control and overwhelming.

We were able to see the sunset and the sunrise over the beautiful Annapurna mountain range. Again, God’s beauty in His creation overwhelmed me, and I was moved to worship.

Sometimes, I get so busy here with my daily routine that I forget to look up and gaze at God’s creation.

Even though I don’t have the Himalayan mountain ranges to look at here in Memphis, His creation is still all around me. I need to take moments each day to appreciate it and worship our Creator.

I encourage you to take some time today to gaze at God’s creation and worship Him. Slow down, and enjoy it.

“For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods, in whose hand are the depths of the earth, the peaks of the mountains are His also… Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” (Psalm 95:3-4, 6)

  1. It must have been wonderful being in such a beautiful place!

  2. Heather, there are no words to describe it! We had a great time there and hope to go back.

  3. Crickett, what a blessing to serve in Nepal. WHen I was in Honduras for 3 months I looked to the mountains and this verse blessed me. I was helping a doctor in her medical clinic. Gossip was spreading like wildfire about the pastors wife. I asked people not to include me in the conversation. I was ousted for a few days. I looked to the hills and God helped me find peace amidst the storm. My steadfastness not to talk about the pastors wife was noticed. People came to me to apologize and repent. God did much healing. THank you for sharing.

    • Wow, that’s a tough situation, but one that God obviously used for good. That verse definitely takes on new meaning for me after seeing the mountains in Nepal. Thanks for sharing!

  4. God’s majesty should always give us pause. Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience in His world.

    • Deborah, you are so right – we need to take time to pause and ponder His majesty in creation. It was a good reminder to me as I gazed at His beauty through His creation. Thanks for sharing!
