I lift up my eyes to you, to you whose thron is in heave. ~Psalm 123:1~

My Child,

>When you have a difficult assignment at hand, do you lower your head like a bull and go for it? Do you grit your teeth and bury yourself in the details of your objective?

I want to give you some advice. Don't lower your head; lift your eyes. Look to me. Commit your objective to me, whether it's a committee report or a decision ot discipline a child. Look up and ask me to give you my perspective on what you're attempting. Ake me to give you guidance and my game plan. Make sure that what you're doing doesn't conflict with my Word or my will. Then line up your plan of action and go for it.

The One to Whom You Look,
