Look Up!

I have a feeling someone needs this today...

"The psychologist tells us we should look within.

The opportunitst tells us we should look around.

The optimist says we should look ahead, and the pessimist says we should look out.

But God says we should look up-even when we feel down."

-John Phillips




I needed this today! Not because I am down but because I look up every single day. I look up to God from my heart letting His HEART touch my soul - to cleanse - to purify - and to heal.

I also look up from my window or from the Sanctuary Circle in Shepherd's Walk [The Prayer Walk path] here at Sweetbriar.
What am I looking for?

God's Word tells us in
2 Timothy 4:8
Now there is in store for [us] the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to [us] on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.


THAT is why I'm looking up!

Bless you for the reminder!

Choosing JOY in the skies unfolding, Stephanie

I look up too. I've learned that there is only one way for me after spending so many years looking inward and outward. Looking up to God is where I find my daily joy and strength. I have lots of pictures that would be perfect for this title.

Thanks for making me think.

Amen! Love this, Cherie. I so wish I had God blinders where all I could see would be filtered through Him.

Looking up keeps me focused and strong.
