When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look, and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
—”Before the Throne of God Above,” Charitie Lees Bancroft
It’s my hope and prayer that Looking Upward helps you do exactly that: Look upward to Jesus, who loves you and me more than we could ever imagine.
My name is Olivia Davis. I write to help people discover the love and majesty of Jesus Christ. My Looking Upward articles have been featured by The Gospel Coalition, Challies.com, Just Thinking magazine, and more.
I’m a writing coach and provide in-depth editing and content development services to individuals and organizations. I am the Director of Marketing and Communications at Help The Persecuted. If you’re interested in collaborating with me, thank you! Here’s my portfolio.
When I’m not writing or reading, I’m probably practicing a musical instrument (piano, flute, and cello), drawing a pencil portrait, or spending time with my family and my deeply beloved church in Atlanta, Georgia.
If my sermons kept people from reading the Bible for themselves, I would like to see the whole stock in a blaze and burned to ashes! But if they serve as fingerposts, pointing to the Scriptures and saying, “Read this, and this, and this,” then I am thankful to have printed them.
