Where do you look to for help?

When real life demands to be lived, a chirpy Psalm might seem a bit shallow to turn to. What’s the use in saying God will keep us from all evil when death and evil clearly still impacts our daily lives? What is the Psalmist trying to say? What hope is there in celebrating the faithful presence of God when presence seems impossible?

I asked myself these things while reflecting on my moments in a Romanian cable car swinging hundreds of feet in the air.
