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