One of Those Days

Have you ever had a day like this poor brother?  I know I have!

In his case, he wandered too close to a group of playing children and got knocked over, losing his head…  Oh yes, there are days like that!

Think about the picture… our brother who is having a bad day (really bad in fact) is giving us a clue as to how to cope; do you see it?

His gaze is upward, to things that are above!

And notice this: He really does look pretty calm, doesn’t he?  He’s had his worst day in a long time, he’s been knocked down by all that is swirling around him in this life, and yet he is calmly looking heavenward…

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

(Psalm 121:1-2)

I wonder what would happen if we lifted our eyes to the things that above before the crisis hit!
