Looking Up

2011: Surprise pregnancy. New car. House put up for sale. Work truck wrecked... and it's only April. OK Lord, what else does this year have in store?

I've been speaking often of the challenge to keep our gaze on the Father, despite what comes our way or amount of things that are going on. Despite my fleshly urges to get all enamored and stressed with the sometimes weighty responsibilities of life I choose to stand up and walk out what my mouth has proclaimed.

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow [my] foot to slip; He who keeps [me] will not slumber. Psalm 121:1-3

May this one precious picture speak to us……
2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, 3 for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Col 3:1-3 (NRSV)
3 and said, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Matt 18:3-4 (NRSV)
