While on a morning walk I scanned the bright blue sky above and counted over thirty contrails slicing across the azure canopy. The wispy white streaks silently announced the passing of high-flying planes filled with passengers and cargo. So much was happening above me and I would have missed it all if I not looked up. How much in life do I miss for failure to follow King David’s example? He proclaimed: “I lift up my Eyes to the heavens”. The lesson? Keeping our noses to the grindstone on earth must be done with our eyes and heart toward God’s throne above. Lord of Glory, You continually act within the heavenlies to enforce Your will in the earth whether I notice or not. Help me to keep my face turned toward You. To You I lift up my eyes.
