“But my eyes are toward You, O God the Lord; in You do I trust and take refuge…” Psalm 141:8a
Have you ever noticed that it’s so much easier to be joyful and content when your eyes are on Jesus? Why are we so easily distracted? If we would only keep our hearts and minds fixed on Him and the truth of His Word, life would be so much easier to bear.
It reminds me of the blessed words from Joseph Scriven’s hymn: “O, what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear; All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”
Do you need to redirect your eyes upon Him, today? Cast everything upon Him, and take note of how He carries you through it.
