To say that we live in turbulent times would be a significant understatement. Covid-19, social unrest, geopolitical instability, fires, hurricanes, and the list goes on. And while that list feels like more than enough to push us all over the edge, these are only the things outside of us. Families, work, school, medical issues, and various other aspects of life add on to the stresses we already swim in. So in a world where it seems like everything and anything is careening out of control, what do we do and where do we turn?

In Psalm 125 the psalmist paints a picture of where we find our help in times like those we are in today. We trust in God, the almighty God who loves us as His people and surrounds us completely.
