Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

I had 3 reminders this week to fix my eyes on Jesus.

The first came as I was paddle boarding. I turned my eyes from the buildings in the distance, looked down at the water beneath me, and fell into it. I got on my board and thought where I look makes a difference. Fix your eyes on Jesus flashed across my mind.

The next reminder came while eating dinner at a friend’s house*. This was on their wall:

Then, on Sunday, the very first song we sang at church was “Turn Your Eyes On Jesus.”

So now I remind you. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2).”
