Turn your eyes upon Jesus

“His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well”

The popular hymn “Turn your eyes upon Jesus” prompts us to divert attention towards Jesus, allowing the fade of whatever trials are in front of us. A great way to begin your day is listening to this song. The simple text says that all will be well, things will pass and there will be hope, light for another day.

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

I simply want to remind you that there is a light, there is a hope, that in time, things will turn around. Some days are slower, some days fly by. There are moments in life, where there looks to be no way out, but let life surprise you. Today may have looked different than the past, and perhaps your future is fragile, but hope is not lost. Seek the light in which this song sings of. A light that is always shining.

“Light is still guiding you, illuminating everything…and this includes the beautiful things, the hard – to –notice – things, the I- never – really –looked – at – it -that – way- until – now sort of things. This is the kind of change that makes a difference in you. – Morgan Harper Nichols

Remind yourself that you aren’t alone. In your everyday, in the mistakes, in the frustrations. All begins with Jesus.

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.
