Today’s Scripture: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Psalm 121:1-3


Have you ever heard the phrase “Things in song are remembered long?” Well, a few months ago, our Junior High and High school sang a song for graduation entitled ‘Look Up’ from International Spy Academy by Patch the Pirate. After I listened to them sing, I couldn’t help but continue to think about how many people need to hear and believe the message of that beautiful song. Today, I want to share those words with you:

It seems we’ve walked in circles while staring at the ground,

Our magnifying glass held up to troubles all around,

Oh who can point us to the solving clue?

Because right now solutions aren’t in view,

Look up! Look up! The answers there are found.

But you will never see them by always looking down.

Look up! Look up! And soon the truth will dawn.

The answers you are looking for,

Are only found in God.

His finger prints are everywhere despite what others say,

And as we search to find the clues salvation points the way,

Though some may say there is no God at all,

Behold His face and listen to His call.

Look up! Look up! The answers there are found.

But you will never see them by always looking down.

Look up! Look up! And soon the truth will dawn.

The answers you are looking for,

Are only found in God.

At this time in your life, solutions may not be in view. Whether you are struggling with health, finances, relationships, or whatever life has brought your way, share it with your Lord right now. If you feel as though you can not see anything but trouble, remember Heaven is your eternal home. The pains of this world are only for a season, but the joys of spending forever with the Lord can never be taken away from you. Instead of staring down at life’s problems this week ask God for His strength. Choose, by God’s grace, to Look Up.
