lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help
comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth" (Psalms 121:1-2).
I will raise my eyes from this world's strife, pain, and struggles to
the mountains of the Lord. I will lift my eyes from the pain and
ugliness, and lift my eyes to His help. In times of weakness and doubt, I
will lift my eyes to the Maker of heaven and earth.
I must see
past what is before me. I must see past what my physical eyes only see,
to the distant view of His promise. I must train my eyes to see His
mountains ahead, until they become focused and sure in my sight....until
the promise of the highest summit is rock-solid in my heart.
From the mountain height comes the refreshment of His living waters.
They flow to refresh the parched earth. Just as the thirsty soil looks
to the mountains for its fulfillment, so my thirsty soul looks to His
mountain heights. I await His living water as one who longs for His next
breath. For all that I need I will raise my eyes to Him who made heaven
and who made earth.
