Day 15: Up


What a weird morning.

I just feel blah.

I woke up late,

but I guess I needed the sleep,

but

I don't feel refreshed.

So I take inventory

Why am I so restless?

And there is no answer.

So

I continue to focus on the restlessness,

because I want it to go away.

And

then all I can hear

is the ringing in my ears.

Hmm..

now that is the problem

because my focus is on

What I don't want to feel

on

What I don't want to hear.

Therefore,

I will keep feeling it

and I will keep hearing it

if that is where my focus is.

Hmm....

Thank you God.

I get it.

Just

Look Up.

When things look bleak and gray

and you don't know what to do

Look Up~

"Look at Him; give Him your warmest smile. Never hide your feelings from Him.

When I was desperate, I called out, and God got me out of a tight spot." ~Psalm 34:5-6

When things look sunny and bright

and you do know what to do

Look Up~

"Open your mouth and taste,

open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to Him." ~Psalm 34:8

Because

No matter what you are feeling

No matter what are doing

No matter what is not happening or happening in your life

Look Up

because

"The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth

in order to strengthen those whose hearts are

fully committed to Him." ~2 Chronicles 16:9a,

I get it

"Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—

the best,

not the worst;

the beautiful,

not the ugly;

things to praise,

not things to curse."

~Philippians 4:8 The Message

The ringing in my ears is still ringing,

but now I smile

because it is all

Up

from here.

From Down to Up

From Rags to Riches
