This past week I have felt like a human jukebox. There have been so many songs creeping into my head everything from Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, by Mozart to a song my late aunt Jean led in church, God Cares . But the one that has been most preeminent every day is a song by Earth, Wind, and Fire entitled “Keep Your Head to the Sky.”

The lyrics are just so profound. Released in 1973, this was the focal piece from their fourth studio Album entitled “Head to the Sky” yet these words have been etched on my heart for as many years as this song is old. The scripture that comes to mind is I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.  He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. (Psalm 121:1-3)

This post is dedicated to those of us who feel defeated, lost, and confused. For those of us who are struggling to still find purpose and hope in a world full of darkness and despair. This post is to help strengthen and uplift your spirit. Because no matter what your circumstances or what they may appear— Jesus is still the light of the world and God is still greater than your circumstances. And always remember…His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5b) I pray that in some small way you find encouragement and inspiration from this song.

Master told me one day
I’d find peace in every way,
but in search for the clue
wrong things I was bound to do

Keep my head to the sky
for the clouds to tell me why
As I grew with strength
Master kept me as I repent

Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky

Gave me the will to be free
purpose to live is reality
Found myself never alone
changes came to make me strong

Step right up, be a man
You need faith to understand
so we’re saying for you to hear
Keep your head in faith’s atmosphere

Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky

“The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;  The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV)
