Everywhere she turned, she kept getting reminded to look up front. Turn your neck side to side, but keep your eyes looking forward. What if I need to turn around? Keep looking up front. I have something I want to retrieve. Keep looking up front. My feet keep moving, an I am sometimes wandering, but I am looking up front.
As she grew in to a young lady, she felt strong. She could conquer anything in her path. As she became a woman, she had beautiful children. She became fearless, thinking only of protecting them from anything the world put in their path.
As her children grew up an had children of their own, she did not feel as strong. Her step faltered. She felt like turning around. She felt like going back to being a little girl, to the comforts of home, an her parents. She wanted to go back to the time of raising her children. She wished to do everything all over again.
She thought of what she had been told. To always look up front. She realized she never left anything behind. She had wonderful memories. The regrets were sent to her side.
Looking up front was meant to be filled with excitement. What was up front, was her future. She could fear it or she could pray about it. She could worry till she was sick and full of stress, or she could give what was up front to the Lord.
She had been taught to pray at a very young age. She had asked the Lord in to her heart. Sometimes she let prayer slip away, and she started to turn around.
But, prayer was in her heart again, along with fear, was her strength to look forward to her future. She was on the path He had made for her. He loved her. He protected her. She looked up front because she is following the Lord.
Psalms 34:4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Praise the Lord!
