It hurts, this thing called life:
With all its bumbling,
and humbling.
It just isn't fun and sometimes it feels like it just isn't fair.
And does God ...
Really care?
But we know He does.
His word is enough on all matters.
His grace is sufficient through all matters;
And that's truly all that matters.
So we live this day with our eyes turned up,
And the tears coming down;
And we offer praise to God because He's worthy.
In the moment that He is lifted up ... we are lifted up.
In the moment that He is glorified ... we are being sanctified.
All is good and all is as it should be ...
When we praise God.
So let's begin there.
"I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in  whom I will trust; my buckler and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."
Psalm 18:1-2
