Look Up

A few days ago, my sister, Abbie, and I were driving to orchestra rehearsal. The radio was on. I sat in the passenger seat, staring straight ahead at the long, gray road.


Suddenly, I looked up. I saw that we were driving through a tunnel of lovely autumn trees. The vivid colors stood out against the gray dullness of the road.

The rest of the ride I spent looking up at the farmhouses, fields, and trees along the road. I would have missed a lot of beautiful sights had I simply watched the road the whole way.

Life is like that sometimes. I tend to only pay attention to what is right before me and how whatever is going on will affect me. I forget to look up.


When I do look up, I wonder how I could have ever forgotten what it feels like to be spending time with God and how He helps me see and dwell on more than just the present.

There are many beautiful things to be seen if one only looks up instead of straight ahead.

I want to challenge you to remember to look up - today, tomorrow, and forever.


Have you looked up today?
