Keeping Your Eyes On Jesus

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

When you feel like complaining, focus on Jesus.
   When you get bad news, focus on Jesus.
   When life throws you an unexpected curve ball, focus on Jesus.
   When you feel all hope is lost, focus on Jesus. 
   When stuck in traffic, focus on Jesus.
   When you feel alone, focus on Jesus.
   When you feel like no one cares, focus on Jesus. 
   When you start to sink into self pity, focus on Jesus. 
   When someone tells lies about you, focus on Jesus. 
   When someone walks out on you, focus on Jesus. 
   When you get a not so cheery medical diagnosis, focus on Jesus.
   When you don't know which way to turn, focus on Jesus. 

Whatever it is you are going through you don't have to go through it alone. It is true what  you often here, tomorrow is another day and yes the sun will come out tomorrow.

Satan's job is to keep you fearful, agitated, angry, hopeless, doubting, and deceived. Your job is to let your mind gravitate to focusing on uplifting and encouraging things not digging a huge hole of pity. Jesus came that you might have and enjoy life and have it more abundantly. The best is yet to come. Press on. 

PRAYER: You are Lord of all creation and when I go through things I know you are only a prayer away. I choose to look up and not live a defeated life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
