Look up

For we have great joy and consolation in your love,
because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you brother
Philemon 1:7
The day and night become one 
It is only the walk that makes the day 
My home has become work
What day is it? For only when I look up the day brightens

Today, was different 
Turning on the TV as a routine of five minutes before switching off
The news is nothing but fear and despair
The internet is nothing but images that brings to live the fear

So as I sit and let the Good News overflow me 
It only in You, I find the strength 
For it does get hard and sometimes I forget
And look at the problem 
and merely glance at You, God 

As evening comes, I take a break
I stop everything, I reverse
I turn back, I look up

And gaze at Our Almighty Powerful God
And just glance at the problem
Hear our prayers O God, and let our cry come to You
In Christ Jesus, amen
