No matter which way someone holds a burning match, the flame always points upward.
No matter which way a tree may be unnaturally twisted, its new branches will reach upward.
And no matter how topsy-turvy our lives might seem, how out of control things might feel, we can always reach upward. For each of us can know that, “He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.” (Psalm 18:33) We can always focus up.
