I Will Look Up: 31 Mornings Seeking Him First

Every single day there are countless opportunities to look down. Down in discouragement. Down in weariness. Down in shame. There are also countless opportunities to look around. Look around at everyone else’s success. Look around at all the things we think we need. Look around at all the endless tasks and needs and responsibilities surrounding us.

But something supernatural happens when we, like the psalmist, Look Up.: When we seek Him first. “Oh Lord, in the morning, will I direct my prayer, unto Thee and will look up” (from Psalm 5).

I Will Look Up is the perfect companion for any who desire to seek Him first. Thirty-one honest, scriptural, thought-provoking messages, along with practical action steps, will help readers live life with eyes upturned.

Let in Light: His Truth Every Morning for 31 Days

Every single day, first thing in the morning, we must let light into our world. We all must. Without His Light, we’re lost. We’re in darkness. We must daily turn on the Light of God’s Word, to allow us to see. Without His light, we’re lost. We’ll see the world through a distorted lens. We won’t know which way to go. We won’t have the wisdom we need for decisions. We’ll be stumbling along through life, groping in the dark each day, desperate for guidance, starving for hope.

He has given us everything we need for life and godliness. But we must let His light into our lives. Every single day. This little book helps you establish this light-letting-in habit: His truth every morning for 31 days.

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).
“In Your light we see light” (Psalm 36:9).


Friendship: A Gift to Give

Female friendships – we love them and hate them. Perhaps we’ve tasted their sweetness—the intimate confiding, the side-splitting laughter, the unspoken understanding, the tender times of sharing. But also perhaps we’ve tasted their bitterness—the silent competition, the misunderstanding, the hurt feelings, and even the betrayal and deep wounds many of us have endured. At times we hunger for more friendship and at times we envy Eve, in Eden, where there were no other women around! Never have we been more connected and never have we been more alone. Jesus said there is no greater love than true friendship. So what is this type of friendship Jesus speaks of, and how do we find it? And how do we move past our wounds and insecurities to reach out a tender, vulnerable hand and grasp the one beside us? Through the stories of six scriptural duos—and a handful of contemporary ones—this book will inspire, encourage, and enable you to give the greatest gift—yourself—and discover heavenly friendship along the way.
