I Looked Up

Post by Hope »

I looked down and I found
that everything looked bad,
I looked back and I saw
so many things that were sad.
I looked up and I could feel
the sun shine on my face,
I felt love, and I felt peace,
and Gods Heavenly grace.
I realized everyday what I needed to do,
No matter what I was doing,
or what I was going through.
If I looked down I missed the hope,
and the strength for the day,
If I looked back I’d dwell on things,
I could not change anyway.
But looking up I would find everything that I need,
I’d have a reason to keep trying,
knowing with God I could succeed.
Everyday as I pray I ask God for His will,
Knowing He takes care of me,
and no matter what He loves me still.
And when I’m down, and feeling like
there is no hope around,
I look up and I realize,
where true hope is found.
When I look back and I worry about,
what has already been done,
I look up and I see the battles over,
and my Father has won.
Yes looking up my soul is filled,
with Gods peace, and Gods love,
My life is blessed everyday,
because of my Father above.

Oh Eva this poem is so beautiful and gives me so much hope knowing that God is always here for me no matter what.And so many of you have been trying to tell me just reach out to God and he will take your hand.But I was depending more on people to come rescue me from my lonliness.And in the end God is the only one that can truly be there for me no matter what.What blessing this poem is and what a blessing you are to so many.Thank you for sharing this with me.
I Love You

It's a wonderful and comforting feeling, knowing that our Lord and God is with each of us every single day, and that (as Lynelle shared) is so present to us more so that people are, when we think we are alone and forgotten. As you say dear Eva, we only have to look up and He is there, and He is always there and here for all of us. What a most beautiful way to expressed that thought with this awesome poem of yours. Thank you dear friend for shaing this. I am truly blessed as the others are. God bless. Note: you folks are putting these poems out faster than I can keep up with them!!! But that is a sign that God is alive in each of us and keep them coming.

Dear Eva,

What an expression of love for God that could only come from a heart as tenderly filled with His grace as yours is. It is like reading the lyrics of a beautiful heavenly written song. The angels above would be the only ones who could do it justice.

I am thankful I saw it. I have truly been blessed.

Love you,
Karen
