The Upward Pull

Sometimes in life we just have to rely on knowing
that God is there and still cares about us.
Even when we cannot see Him in action,
He is still working.

The Upward Pull

He stood aside from his playmates,
His sightless eyes to the sky,
And the cord in his hands was tightly drawn
By the kite that flew so high.
In his big eyes, wondering, beautiful,
On his pale little slender face,
There shone such a rapture, such keen delight,
That someway it seemed out of place.
And I could not forbear to pause and ask,
”My laddie, what pleases you so,
As you hold your kite in the far-off sky,
Since its motion you cannot know?”

He turned and smiled as he softly said,
And his voice with joy was full,
“I can’t just explain, but it makes me glad,
When I feel that upward pull.”

That Upward Pull; it comes to us
‘In the weariness of strife.
When we stand bewildered, blinded and hurt,
Mid the fall of our cherished dream.
It is good to know that we cannot fail,
If we follow the heavenly gleam,
And never an hour may be so sad,
Nor ever a sky so dull
But we may, if we will, reach out and find
That God-given, Upward Pull.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2

And I will share a couple cards I made :
