Fix Your Eyes on THIS!
Whether we read our Bibles in the morning, at lunch, or at bedtime, our schedules and responsibilities often invade our lives with uninvited distractions. The enemy uses distractions to pull our eyes off Christ and prevent us from hearing God speak through His Word. Meditation frees us to fix our eyes on Jesus, tune out distractions and it opens the door to a meaningful time of prayer. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. (Ps. 119:15)
Looking for God
Are you going in circles… wandering in the wilderness… feeling lost and alone? God, where are you? Don’t curse your location, your wilderness is the place between receiving a promise from God and seeing it come to pass. God uses the wilderness to prepare and equip you to fulfill your divine purpose. When you can’t see His hand, trust His heart.
Saul’s jealousy of David blinded him to what God had already given him.

What God has for you…is for you! It’s time to slay that green-eyed monster!

Caring for a loved one strains even the most resilient person. Caregiver stress- the emotional and physical stress of caregiving is common.

The Disciples couldn’t see the other side of the lake while they were in the midst of a storm. They thought they were going to die, so they went to get help. Are you in a storm? Learn from the Disciples…go wake up Jesus! He has the power to speak peace to your storm and get you safely to the other side.
Should I Move Forward?
Jesus told his disciples to shake the dust off their feet and walk away when they were not welcomed, appreciated or the message was rejected. God calls us to stand firm, proclaim truth and continue until we see the results of that testimony. Other times God gives us the freedom to move on with a clear conscience.
Do you find it easy to magnify the faults of others while excusing your own? If you are ready to criticize someone, check to see if you deserve the same criticism. Jesus statement, “ Do not judge,” is against the kind of hypocritical, judgmental attitude that tears others down in order to build oneself up. Take the plank out of your eye before you try to remove the speck out of someone else.
These Lying Eyes
If you look at your situation with the natural eye things will certainly appear dismal and hopeless. Don’t believe your lying eyes. This is an obscure perspective. Look UP! Yes, shift your gaze to an upward direction and see the goodness of the Lord. God has an aerial view and a vision plan that will give you hope and help in your time of need. (Ps 27:13; 121:1)

When our spiritual vision become blurred, we have the gift of the Holy Spirit to guides us to the truth, away from sin and to our purpose. You don’t have to walk through life out of focus.
