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.
