Lift Up Your Eyes
"Lift up your eyes on high
and see who has created these stars,
the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name;
because of the greatness of His might
and the strength of His power,
not one of them is missing."
Throughout Scripture God
invites you not only to look up at His created beauty,
but to lift up your eyes
to the One who is enthroned in the heavens
Thrill to the prompting of God's love.
Open your heart to His intimate fellowship
that awaits you.
Y0u need not walk with your head down, as animals do.
Look up and immerse yourself
in the beauty and awesomeness of His creation.
Leave your worries, your stress , and your fears.
Lift up your eyes on high for a new perspective,
"Father, than you for surrounding me with continual blessings. Help me to look away from the cares of the world and focus on you today."
