Don't Look Down...Look Up!

What do I see when I look down? My feet!

If I keep my head down and just look at my feet, my view is blinkered. I will only see where my feet are going. I miss seeing where I could be taken if I looked up!

What do I see when I look up...?
...sunshine and blue skies
...a child's smiling face
...a hand held out to help
...a heart to hold me

I look up and I see BLESSINGS!

If I keep my focus downward I will, without a doubt, miss out on so many blessings. Yet if I look up, without a doubt, it will only take a moment to see so many blessings.

With every sun comes a new day, and with that same certainty I can say that with every new day come new blessings. If I am looking down at my feet I will only see my feet and where they are taking me. I will miss out on what the new day brings.
Lifting my head to look up will show me where I could be taken, it will show me the wonder of a new day.
If I look up I will see the good God has for me. I will see all that I have been blessed with. I will see new opportunities to share the blessings that I have. I will see a brighter day.

"I look up to the mountains, does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!
The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever."
Psalm 121 v 1-2 & 7-8 (New Living Translation)
