Where Are Your Eyes?

Chaos is all around. It is something that is hard to escape on a daily basis. Everyone knows at least one person or more, who is fighting a battle that is unimaginable. The kind that they never thought that they would be part of.

As things go wrong with one thing or another in our life, that is when we tend to take our focus off of the things that are of God and try to take care of things ourselves. We take things into our own hands instead of laying everything down at the feet of Jesus. We become frazzled, disoriented, and before we know it, we have lost all sense of direction.

The words of the old chorus, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”, are those that can bring remembrance to your soul, that we are not in it alone. That things are not as bad as they seem, because we look at things with our natural eyes.

1 Corinthians 13:12 says, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

It’s talking about perspective and not really understanding what is going on, because you’re not seeing the “whole” picture, but one day, you will fully understand. Just go on living a life of trust in God, faith in God, and loving God and letting your faith grow! He will never leave you, nor forsake you, but will go with you to the very end.

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of Earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
