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