Saturday July 17, 2021 – Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Hebrews 12:2  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

It is so wonderful to experience the exhilarating joy of our faith.  But there are times when the ‘stuff’ surrounding us just becomes overwhelming – particularly now as we see such chaos, rebellion and rejection of truth going throughout our country.  Plus, our own problems, difficulties, fears and hurts can act like dimmer switch turning the “light” of our faith down.

It is particularly in these times when we need to turn our eyes upon Jesus – to focus
upon Him.  When we do, He can transform us so wonderfully.  The light of our faith is restored and refreshed.

This morning I have been so blessed by watching and listening to the linked video.  It is Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus by the Newsboys.  Take time today to turn your eyes upon Him.
