I lift my eyes up

The dust has settled!  No Really.  It has settled in the basement.  It is time for me to clean.  It's a good indicator of how long we've been dwelling there.  We are finally into a routine.  With school in session and adults working each day our rhythm is forming the melody of our lives.  In the midst of it, God is always pursuing me.

I'd like to show you.......

Spending my days at the school, I am continually hearing teachers call out, "1-2-3" as the class responds with, "Eyes on me!" And then, it continues with a "1-2" and "eyes on you!"
The teachers do this to keep the students attentive to what they are teaching. 

It makes me wonder how often the Holy Spirit is calling out the "1-2-3" to me.  When I hear his call like a military sound off....I "Turn my eyes upon Jesus and look full in His wonderful face."

So, when I stop and think about our home sitting vacant in Oklahoma and the five of us Meyer's living in a basement, I hear the call of "1-2-3" and I smile because that's all it takes for me to put my eyes on Him.  I see His provision for me.  This place- a home with all it's busy sounds.  This patience that's carried me through 70 days on the market.  This Peace that truly is beyond my understanding.  All of these provisions allow for me to testify of HIS Goodness.  Never once have I ever felt alone.  He is carrying me through it all.

When I hear "1-2-3" from my Lord, I know He cares about where I'm looking. 

Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV)

My Help Comes from the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

121 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
    From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.
