I Will Lift My Eyes.
"I will lift my eyes to the Maker
of the mountains I can't climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You."
Last week I shared a post written around the song "One Thing Remains", and this is another of my favorite songs.
This song encourages us to look beyond ourselves. To know that our Maker is out there, and that he has made the mountains and the earth.
The song reminds us that God is the Calmer of wild oceans, and that anything is possible through him.
And it tells us that he is our Healer. He is there for us when we need him.
The presidential election is taking place today. I'm sure many people are biting their nails waiting to hear the results. It's a big deal. This next president will be the leader of our country for the next four years. We want the right person to get in to lead our country.
And we need to be praying today.
We need to also remember that God is in control.
That no matter who gets in that will not change.
Of course we want what is best for our country. We should. But no matter what happens, we will still have a good God to call Father.
A God who made the mountains, who calms the oceans.
A God who loves you and me more than we could ever know.
And God is in control.
