In order to make much of Jesus in 2014, Jesus has to be who I’m focused on.
My path has been crazy the past several years, and I’m not yet where I tend to think I should be at this point in my life.
But when I fix my eyes on Jesus, when HE is who I pursue, everything else will fall into place. I don’t need to worry about being in the right place at the right time, because if I’m following Him, I WILL be exactly where I need to be, when I need to be there.
As I began to focus on Him yesterday, God revealed that He has given me one final place of respite and growth before planting me in ministry. I don’t know how long I’ll be here, but I do know what I need to do in this season.
Please pray with me that my eyes will remain on Him over the next several months, not where I am physically.
“We fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).
“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” (Helen Lemmel).
“But when I fix my eyes/On all that you are/Then every doubt I feel/Deep in my heart/Grows strangely dim/All my worries fade/And fall to the ground/Cause when I seek your face/And don’t look around/Any place I’m in/Grows strangely dim” (Francesca Battistelli).
