Throughout life, we find that looking up is so important. High in the sky is a new picture each day of life. There are either sunny days, cloudy days, raining days and a mixture of all. I love watching clouds and how they change form so easily. It is as if God is painting throughout the day and if you look close enough, you can see the clouds take shapes. It all about changes on a daily base.
All around the world, there is a sky. A place to look up an see the beauty of God. Our lives are purposed and God wants us to live in this day.
LIFE ~ Life In Faith Eternally
Psalm 121 (NIV)
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains--
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip--
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you--
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm--
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
LIFE ~ is about looking up and knowing where you hope comes from in life. God is the creator of this earth, the sky, the now and forever. Reaching far above it all and resting in the secret place of God. That place of just trusting and resting in his plan. Our very own choices has brought us sorrow at times and victories at times. God will watch over your coming and going the Bible states. It is for our now and forevermore.
LIFE ~ I was created in my mother's womb
Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
We must realize that we were just not created, but took time to knit us together. God planned it far before we were born. He knew the opportunities that would be set before us. Our own choices are daily given and free will isn't always free. It means we must give up the right to sin and grab tight onto forgiveness that God gives.
It is written throughout the word of God, the plan he has for you. It is written throughout the word of God that you can do all things through Christ. So many positive things within the Bible. Never stop believing in greater things and keep faith alive.
There are season to cry, mourn and weep. There are season to rejoice and smile. Through it all, we can reach the goal of life one day. Until then, let us live in today. Count blessings and share life with one another. Life is worth living and do all you can do in one day. I like that people care about me and show me. I do my best to show others I care and I write because I care.
I will never forget the day I walked outside the care home after seeing my mom. It was raining and it was a very hard day. I just looked up, as the sky was letting down rain and said, "really God". I felt so overwhelmed with what I saw that day and I just needed to call upon God. There is something about calling on God that brings his mercy to us. I got into my car and cried out even more. The sky was dark and raining. I got myself together, took a deep breathe and knew that this day was done. I headed home and I knew that tomorrow would be a new beginning.
LIFE ~ Is also about our choices and frame of mind. We can choose to let go of what we can not change and thank God for strength to face the hard things. As I enter a new day today, I find myself helping in my granddaughter's (Brookley) first grade class. A harvest party and dress up time. Then off to the care home and a meeting for my mother in law who has kidney failure. A dinner planned with my daughter and whatever else faces me today. Through it all, I find the good and ask God for his strength as I look up!
My prayers continue for you, your families and friends!
