Years ago I used to visit an elderly lady who lived in a nursing home. She was the mother of one of the members of the church where I preached. This lady was suffering from dementia, and was incapable of carrying on any type of conversation whatsoever. Her vocabulary was limited to just a few words and phrases that she would repeat randomly, over and over again.
One phrase that she said all the time was “God’s the helper”. This lady had been a devout Christian, and it was deeply ingrained in her spirit that God would help her through anything she had to go through—including dementia.
May this be the very last thing that any of us forget—that God is our helper!
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”—Psalm 121:1-2.
