Look Up In Good Times



How easy it is to look up
When those hard times get us down,
For then we recognize our need
And we know where help is found;
But when circumstances are good
Sometimes we fail to look up,
And we miss life’s greatest blessings--
Only God can fill our cup…
Look Up in Good Times.

Peter walked upon the water
And all was going so well,
Till he took his eyes off Jesus
And it was then that he fell;
So many times we go our way
Ignoring our Shepherd’s lead
And we sink just like Peter did,
Unaware it’s Him we need…
Look Up in Good Times.

We just cannot imagine, friend,
What our LORD through us might do
If we would just focus on Him
In the good times we go through;
For our ways and thoughts are not His--
We’re so easily deceived,
But, following Christ our Shepherd,
We are destined to succeed…
Look Up in Good Times.

“My thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my thoughts than your thoughts.”
(Is 55:8-9)
