TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS

It was a beautiful fall day today and I was out sitting on my deck enjoying the sunshine. I found myself staring into the sun and basking up the warmth of the rays. My cats were outside with me and I heard a sound in the dry leaves on the ground, as I turned to look, at first I couldn’t see. The only thing I could see was the outline of the sun everything else was dim. I had to blink a few times to focus. It seemed really strange, like I was trying to see something that I wasn’t a part of. I knew the sound was my cat just a few feet from me, yet it seemed so far away as I tried to focus.

I realized this is just how we are with Jesus. If we keep our focus on Him, our “Sonshine” when we try to look away at the world around us, we can’t really see it. We are not a part of the world or so it seems. It all looks far away and dim to us.

I found myself singing the song that I heard at church last Sunday; it’s one of my favorites:

“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of this earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

As we keep our eyes on Him, the things of this earth will not seem so important to us anymore. We will learn how to experience the Kingdom right here on earth.

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added onto you” Matthew 7:17
