Training: Look Up

Barry Young —  September 26, 2012


Psalm 121:1

I lift up my eyes to the hills where does my help come from

Look up!

Lift up your eyes and get them off of the problems or trials you are facing.

We can’t deny we are going to have bad days or trials at times. But sometimes we get stuck in a rut by just focusing on our problems. When we do this we never overcome the issues of life.

If you want to make a difference today, look up! Look up to God who has the solutions and power for our every day lives.

Be blessed and look up!

  1. I quote this scripture a lot, but do so without the question mark at the end. Since the Psalmist answers the question right afterwards I use this as a declaration. I’m looking up to where my help comes from. Love this scripture. It is so true that we will have our share of problems in life despite our relationship with the Lord. Some we’ll cause for ourselves and others will just come. But it is so comforting to know that God is with us each step of the way. Sometimes He delivers us out of those circumstances and other times He walks with us through them. And He promises we can have peace regardless. We truly are blessed.

    • I need to fix it! It was written without the question mark but I added it without checking!


      I love this verse as well. It’s a continual battle to stay aware.
