Where Do I Look?
By Larry Chadwick
If I look deep into the mirror,
Is it still a shallow soul?
If I raise my eyes towards heaven,
Wouldn’t that be a better goal?
Can I face life by myself,
When I always seem to stumble?
Shouldn’t I confess my need of God,
And begin to act more humble?
Do I take the time to read,
Of the Words He has provided?
Or do I ignore them on my desk,
Because in others I’ve confided?
Have I offered up some prayers,
And confessed my utter need?
Or do I think that I can rely,
Upon doing special deeds?
If I look into that mirror,
Isn’t it only me that I will see?
Shouldn’t I just lift my head,
And focus on God instead of me?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
