One of Those Days

31 May

by Don Merritt

Have you ever had a day like this poor brother? I know I have!

In his case, he wandered too close to a group of playing children and got knocked over,

losing his head… Oh yes, there are days like that!

Think about the picture… our brother who is having a bad day (really bad in fact)

is giving us a clue as to how to cope; do you see it?

His gaze is upward, to things that are above!

And notice this: He really does look pretty calm, doesn’t he? He’s had his worst day in a long time,

he’s been knocked down by all that is swirling around him in this life,

and yet he is calmly looking heavenward…

I 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 121:1-2)

I wonder what would happen if we lifted our eyes to the things that above before the crisis hit!
