I lift my eyes up
to the Maker of Heaven and Earth
I open my heart up
to listen to what He has to tell me

I have tried to own up
for the errors I have made
I have tried to send up
an offering of peace

Now I need to look up
to the promises from above
I need to stand up
and somehow carry on

I am letting myself be wrapped up
in the arms of my Saviour
I am letting myself be held up
by His everlasting grace

I have a hard time with the listen part- I want to hear, but my own need for control always seems to get in the way- I have the hardest time learning the lesson of patience and leaning on him instead of trying to do it all alone......I guess I'm still a work in progress!

just be still in Him, He will hold you and give you the courage to put one step in front of the other. Beautifully written!

The focus always needs to be up....as soon as we look to ourselves, we get lost. Up, Up, Up, that's what I'm going to remember.
