Food for Soul

I lift up my eyes to the hills —
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth..
 Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV)

Gentle reminder to “Look UP.”
Because when we just keep looking all around, we can easily get defeated.
Drained. Impatient. Or pessimistic.

We might start to worry. Fear creeps in. We lose our focus because we’re so distracted on all the things that can never really give us strength and hope anyway.

People, money or success can’t ever satisfy the void deep inside that only God can fill. This world will never be free of all conflict.

The government won’t ever fix all of our problems. It can’t. Choose today, to set your eyes on God. For if He made all of heaven and earth, surely He has a Sovereign, incredible plan, for you and for me. God bless you.
