This is the chaos before the picture. We never were able to get all of us and the dogs into one pic! I'm glad that my daughters were able to make it work. They are 10 years apart and also just as opposite in personality.

" I will lift up my eyes to the hills - From whence come my help? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber, Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep."  {Psalm 121:1-4 }       

I want to speak to you about where our eyes look, and what they see. I know that I naturally look up when I am praising God. I noticed that my attitude dictates where I look. For instance, when I am looking up, I see the sky, and I don't think about "the sky" at any other time. That upward glance, reveals to me heaven because that's what "the sky" represents to me. I can feel as if there is no limit to where the heavens will take me. I feel closer to Jesus, and that there is nothing that He can't do.

When my emotions are on a downward turn, I don't think about the heavens. I am looking down, because I feel down. I am closed in, to a small space, and reaching out is not a thought. I hope I am not insulting your intelligence. I know these are very simple ideas, but they need to be acknowledged, because we don't realize what I am sharing, without saying it.

What if, I reached out from that simple small space, and looked up, what would I see. I would be released to see that the world is so much bigger than I could have imagined in my small box. This is where a lot of us are today. We are afraid to look up into the face of Jesus, because He might do something new and different in our lives.

I'm here to tell you that he WILL do something new and different, and He intends to take you out of the place that you are in right now. Maybe a comfortable place, that you are used to, but He is calling you out, to a big place where He can use you in ways that you never imagined. DO NOT be afraid, He will do the work, He will lead the way.
