I Will Lift My Eyes

My employer Vivian, who I am also blessed to call a dear friend, needed to retreat to the the beauty of the Maine outdoors last weekend to unwind, be rejuvenated and renewed. She finds great strength in being out in nature. She took this gorgeous picture in Baxter State Park and agreed to let me share it.

Baxter State Park, Maine

It is so beautiful and peaceful and brings to mind Psalm 123:1, “I will lift my eyes to you, you whose throne is in heaven.”

It also makes me think of this song by Bebo Norman that the Lord has used to comfort me many times. As you listen and look upon God’s magnificent creation in Vivian’s photo, may you find His peace and comfort as you face the mountains you can’t climb.

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs you now
God be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt

Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in
