Psalm 48:1-3 NIV
 Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain.  Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth, like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King.  God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress.
Where do we look in times of trouble? Look to the Lord, great and worthy of praise, and the things we face will take their right place and perspective! Look back and see…..he has shown himself to be a fortress – a place of rescue and safety!
Lord, help me to see today the wonder and beauty of all that you are and have done and are doing in and around us!
