When we are dismayed by the world, we still can look up to see God!
We hear news about corruptions, accidents, death, and conflicts. We are fed up with all those human sufferings and cannot read the newspaper anymore. Then we close our eyes and lift up our soul to look up to the Lord! We plea and pray to God!
“To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens! As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until he has mercy upon us. Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.”
O, Have mercy upon us!
