'Looking Up' Matthew West Acoustic Performance Thanking All The Dads

Contemporary Christian artist Matthew West shares a touching song called ‘Looking Up.’


The powerful words were inspired by his own father and it’s a reminder to us all how much our dads truly shape our lives.

“I don’t know how to lead them
So, lead my every move
‘Cause I know those eyes are looking up to me
That’s why I’m looking up to You”

As Father’s Day approached, Matthew wanted to release a special video he made just for his own father. On Instagram, he wrote about the story behind ‘Looking Up.’“While I was looking up to my dad, he was looking up to God for guidance. That’s what I want my kids to see in me: not a dad who’s perfect, but a dad who’s pointing to their Heavenly Father at every turn.”

“I don’t wanna take a step unless You lead it
Don’t wanna speak a word unless You breathe it
God I’m looking up, keep me looking Up
Looking up to the light I know will guide me”

As you listen to these words, remember to always look up to our Heavenly Father and let Him guide the way.

Psalm 127:3-5 “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
