In Other Words Tuesday



"Turn your eyes upon Jesus,look full in His wonderful face,and the things of earth will grow strangely dim,by the light of HIS glory and grace.": I have always loved this song, it is so beautiful. It truly expresses what my heart is feeling these days. If I concentrate on this world, and all of its problems, my eyes can easily become clouded over with a deep sadness, and depression can quickly set in. Recently, I have been dealing with several health problems. I could choose to give into all of this bad news, and totally give up. But, I will never do that. God blessed me with this body, and He breathed life into me. I will gladly fight this battle, until God calls me home. I will not look at the world, I will keep my eyes focused on my beautiful Saviour. His glory and grace, will be the light that sees me through into eternity. Praise God.
