Lift Up Your Head


What are you looking at? Are your eyes focused on the ground beneath your feet? Is your view darkened by your own grey shadow? Have you closed your eyes to preserve them only to lose sight of where you’re going?

Friend, look up. The sky above beckons you to feel the warmth of the sun. The crystal blue is brighter when you’re seeing it for the first time after experiencing the pain of it’s absence. The birds of the air flitter by in hopes that you will notice their morning song.

Don’t let the comfort of your limited view keep you from the spacious life waiting for you.

“We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might standβ€”out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.”
Romans 5:2 (MSG)Β

  2. Oh, I do now know the Lord is bringing home this message. This is the 3rd blog post, the other 2 from friends, 1 I’ve know for probably 30+ years, a professional physiologist world renowned, 1 a friend I’ve known less than a year each with a strong call on their lives. Your succinct, concise word have pulled all of it into a beautiful capsule! Thank you!
