keep your head in the clouds

I love to look up at the clouds.  There's something about that gorgeous blue backdrop and the infinite variety of cloud shapes that is endlessly interesting.  And aren't those views amazing where the sun's rays break through openings in the clouds, creating shafts of light that seem to come from heaven, itself!  You know it's good to get in the habit of looking up.  Our days are often filled with cares and troubles and our world can easily close in on us.  Worse yet, we can stray from the Lord and find ourselves ensnared in tangled webs of sin that seem to hold us like a spider's web holds its insect prey.  But I'm convinced that just as the gorgeous sky lies ever within our upward view, so the Lord is always accessible.  Even when we feel hopelessly lost, confused, entangled in sin...even when we have given up on ourselves and are convinced there is no way out we need to realize that with one upward look we can reestablish contact with our Lord.  What we can't do for ourselves, He stands continually ready to do.  He will lift us up!
It's also good to be a cloud watcher because one day Jesus will come in the clouds!
Matthew 24:30 "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory."
