I Will Lift My Eyes
I will say right away that nothing is wrong and nothing bad has happened. I don’t want anyone to think that by the next thing I’m about to write. Also, this post is about my faith and belief in God and if you’re offended by that you should probably stop reading now. I always love to share my faith with as many people as possible but if it’s not something you’re not interested in reading about I completely understand.
Moving on. Lately I’ve been listening to one song that I absolutely love. It’s definitely what many would consider an “inspirational” song and certainly something I could see myself listening to in the hard times. Anyone heard of Bebo Norman? Until a few months ago I hadn’t and now I’m a huge fan. He has an amazing song out titled "I Will Lift My Eyes"**. This is the chorus to one of my favorite songs right now:
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
So many times as I walk through this life and I see battles raging before me and huge mountains that seem too massive to pass over I forget I serve the God that made them all. Another part of the song states:
‘Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now
I believe this with all my heart. My God was here before anything and will be here after the earth has passed away. It’s easy to feel so alone in the daily walk we have to go through but I’m glad I’m not. I serve a God greater than this world. He made every mountain I have to go through and will keep me standing through every trial I have to walk through. I’m truly thankful He is the force that calms me when I think nothing else can. I am blessed.
** If you'd like to listen to the song (and it really is worth listening to in my opinion) you're welcome to swing by my MySpace page, it's the music that plays when the page loads. If you don't have my MySpace address just leave me a comment or send an email and I'll be glad to share it.
