Raise your eyes to God.
Remember that His ways, and His plans, and His Actions,
ARE NOT LIKE THOSE OF THE WORLD.
NOR LIKE WHAT YOUR REASON WOULD IMAGINE THEM TO BE.
God’s Ways, Plans and Actions are
INFINITE AND FULL OF MERCY AND JUSTICE.
AND VERY IMPORTANTLY, THEY ARE INFINITELY GREATER THAN THE PLANS OF THE ENEMY.
For this reason, it is good to stop frequently and
LOOK UP AT HEAVEN.
Raise your gaze from the rottenness of this world,
And try to see as God sees.
Try to think as He thinks.
But HOW are you supposed to see as He sees,
or think as He thinks?
BY FIRST BRINGING IT ALL TO HIM.
Everything that you see, that you hear, that you feel,
that causes you terror, fear, anguish, despair, sadness, doubts—
bring it all to the Father.
Bring it to Him,
SO THAT TOGETHER, YOU CAN LOOK AT ALL OF IT.
Let Him give you His LIGHT, so that He can teach you how HE sees it,
and how you must truly see it.
So that you regain HOPE,
So that your FAITH is strengthened,
So that you begin to RECOGNIZE HIM more and more,
And so that you become more and more ABANDONED to His love.
Perhaps more than ever before it is necessary to stop seeing with the eyes of the world,
And instead see with the EYES OF ETERNITY.
RAISE YOUR GAZE.
LOOK UP TO THE FATHER WHO LOVES YOU.
WHO WANTS TO ENCOURAGE YOU.
WHO WANTS TO HELP YOU SEE.
