Good News for The Directionally Challenged

September 2, 2012 | 12 comments

When life is dragging you down, look up.

If you’re in the pit, the way out is up.

You’ve slipped? He’ll pick you up.

Been knocked down? A nail-scarred hand pulls you up.

Can’t see your way? Look up.

If down? Up.

If debt? Up.

If despair? Up.

If diagnosis? Up.

Even death? Up.

If we lose our way on the road of life, all signs point to up.

Christ is the compass that orients believing hearts, and it always points up.
