Looking up.....

"I avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward." 
Charlotte Bronte 

Looking Up
"We must lift up our eyes above the hills; we must look beyond instruments to God, who makes them that to us which they are......Our eyes wait on the Lord, the eye of desire and prayer, the begging eye, and the eye of dependence, hope, and expectation, the longing eye. Our eyes must wait upon God as the Lord, and our God, until that he have mercy upon us. We desire mercy from Him, we hope He will show us mercy, and we will continue our attendance on Him till the mercy come....those that rejoice in God will rejoice in calls and opportunities to wait upon Him."
Matthew Henry on Psalms 121, 122, and 123

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
