When Devastation Reigns

When devastation reigns, to whom do we turn?

When our television’s weep over the destruction of the innocent, to whom do we lift up our eyes?

Psalm 123:1-2 (ESV)

To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
2  Behold, as the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
till he has mercy upon us.

O God, I wait on you.
I look for the slightest twitch of your hand, the smallest sign of your coming mercy.
I know it will come, for you are the Lord my God.
With eyes lifted to heaven I stand.
O God, I wait on you.
