“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.”
This is a line from an old song, that I find myself singing to myself these days. Why? Because the things of earth have been so, so prominent in my thinking.
I just had a phone conversation with my mom, where I found myself venting over all the things I am finding wrong about the “things of earth” these days.
I found myself hoping that my phone was actually being bugged, so that someone in power would hear my rant and fix all the problems I feel so powerless to fix.
My mother reminded me that God is not powerless, and that “the effective prayers of a righteous person can accomplish much.” James 5:16
My mom and I know that our righteousness comes from Jesus—and the power in our prayers comes from Him as well.
So for now, we will—“Turn our 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.”
May you be Encouraged!!
