Psalm 123:1 ” I lift up my eyes to You, to You Whose throne is in heaven.”

My dog and I walk everyday, and most times I find myself looking down at the sidewalk. First, because I don’t want to trip, fall, and break a bone…and the other is because I become engrossed in my own thoughts and just zone out. It’s then that God gently reminds me to lift up my eyes. Lift up my eyes to His creation all around me, and marvel at the beauty I’m obliviously walking past. Lift up my eyes with praise and thanksgiving…honoring God in His holy dwelling of heaven, high, exalted, and glorious. For I know that in times of distress and persecution… when my eyes are downcast with care and worry, the appropriate posture is to lift up my eyes and seek the Lord.
