Look up!

Psalm 123: 1

I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose throne is in heaven. NIV

This is such a powerful reminder not to worry.

My propensity to worry is all about where I put my focus.

If I want to be worry free, I can’t look ahead.  If I look to the future, my focus will be on things I cannot control.

I can’t look back.  If I dwell on the mistakes of my past, my attention will be diverted by things I cannot change.

I can’t look down.  If I look down at my own feet, I’ll be tempted to try to make things right under my own power.

It is only when I look up, to God, when I put my full focus on Him, that I can achieve a life free of worry.

That’s what I’ll think about today.
