When suffering comes, in all its different forms, it’s natural, without even realising sometimes, to let our heads drop and our eyes to look down.
Yet the word of God encourages us to lift up our eyes. It can seem counter-intuitive, the hardest thing to do, yet as we manage to lift up our eyes our perspective can be changed.
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].
He will watch over me and you, He will shade us, He will keep us safe, He will always be there.
Whatever you are going through, do what you can to lift up your head, look to Your God, your ever present help in such times.
