Gay Christian Devotion
(King James Version)
1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
The psalmist looks up for help. He looks up. Many gay, bisexual and trans Christians make the mistake of looking down for help. They look to human organizations, to social service agencies and to churches for help. While social service organizations and churches can be a source of help, the ultimate source of help is the Lord. Look up for help. Look up and you will see God reaching down to help you.
