Fix My Eyes

Image result for fix my eyes on jesusHave you ever just stopped and listened to this song? I hear it all the time but never truly paid attention to it until today. The message is a powerful one. We need to fix our eyes on our Creator who gave us life and longs for a relationship with us.
He loves us that much! So much that He sent His only Son to die for us. To die so that we might have life! That’s LOVE, y’all!
I especially love the line, “Find faith in the battle, Stand tall but above it all, Fix my eyes on You.”
Life is going to hand us trials and tribulations. We’re going to meet hardships throughout our life. But through it all, we must fix our eyes on Jesus! He knows what’s best for us and He is the only One who can get you through life’s trials. You may think you can handle it all on your own but you can’t. Only Jesus can and will carry you through life’s storms if you will just surrender to Him!
We can be confident that if Jesus did not leave us in HIS darkest hour, He won’t leave us in OUR darkest hours.
J. D Greear, Not God Enough
So when condemnation whispers “You are finished”, we need only look to the cross to hear Jesus’s triumphant answer: “No! IT is finished!”

(Y’all, I really recommend this book by J.D Greear. It’s AWESOME!)

Stand face to face with the younger me
All of the mistakes
All of the heartbreak
Here’s what I’d do differently
I’d love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on you, on you
I learned the lines and talked the talk (Everybody knows that, everybody knows that)
But the road less traveled is hard to walk (Everybody knows that, everybody knows)
It takes a soldier
Who knows his orders
To walk the walk I’m supposed to walk
And love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on you, on you
The things of Earth are dimming
In the light of Your glory and grace
I’ll set my sights upon Heaven
I’m fixing my eyes on you, on you
I’m fixing my eyes on you, on you
I’m fixing my eyes
Love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on you, on you
I fix my eyes on you, on you
I fix my eyes on you, on you

Godliness with Contentment

See the source image

I was reading in 1 Timothy 6 this morning and came across this verse. A few verses down it also says:

For the love of money is the root of all evil; which while some coveted after they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

See the source imageThis verse has been taken out of context so many times. People will say that money is the root of all evil. That’s not what it says. It says the love of money is the root of all evil. Having money is not a sin. It’s when it becomes our idol that it’s a sin.

We must learn to be content with what we have. Simple as that. We live in a greedy world. So many people will spend spend spend because they think they’ll be happy with all this stuff.

And that’s all it is….it’s stuff. We can’t take it with us when we die!

Matthew 6:19-21 says

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moths and vermin do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The things on earth? They eventually die away. We are to store up our treasures in heaven! That’s where our eternity lies if we are followers of Jesus!

We must be content with what we have.

But godliness with contentment is great gain

1 Timothy 6:6
