Look Up

How can I do it? I have too much to do,
I'm overwhelmed and feeling real blue,
I'm stuck in this house like super glue.
Don't look around....LOOK UP!
The dishes and laundry are piled up high,
When I look 'round the house I have to sigh,
And for supper my husband's expecting a pie!
Don't look around....LOOK UP!
We can't pay the mortgage; bills are overdue,
I'm tired and have headaches, not a few,
These children are driving me crazy, too!
Don't look around....LOOK UP!
My husband comes in late; he doesn't care,
He doesn't help with the children, it's not fair!
I don't want to smile; I just want to glare!
Don't look around....LOOK UP!
Take your eyes off your problems, look up to Him,
God's presence is with you, even in the din!
Confess your bad mood and He'll cleanse your sin.
He is your God....LOOK UP!
He'll show you how to order your place,
He'll give you direction as you seek His face,
He wants to pour upon you His anointing of grace.
He is your God....LOOK UP!
Keep your eyes fixed on Him; He is your Stay,
He is your Wisdom for problems each day,
He will bring His presence right into your fray.
He is your God....LOOK UP!
Each morning He comes as the refreshing Dew
To revive your body, and your spirit too,
He is your Deliverer and He'll make you new,
He is your God....LOOK UP!
By Nancy Campbell
Psalm 121:1-2 "I will lift up mine eyes unto
the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which
made heaven and earth."

Thank you for this poem and the one above they are just what I needed to hear - LOOK UP! We have some money issues and I felt despondent.

Hugs and blessings Sis Julie.
