Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

I was visiting a new blog tonight, Hidden Riches From Secret Places, and got such a blessing. Cora was so kind to leave a comment on my blog today so I went to pay her a visit back. The music she had playing was very nice and as I was reading I recognized one of my favorite hymns. The Lord just blessed me so much in that moment that it brought tears to my eyes.

"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."

Oh how I need to keep my eyes on the wonderful face of Jesus. In the past few weeks I have gotten caught up in the world a bit. There has been bitterness in my heart over my broken marriage. There has been a bit of worry as I sort out my finances and try to support myself and my daughter. There has been a bit of worry over the few short years I have left until retirement and no money put away.

You see, these are all things of the world. But when my eyes are on Jesus these things are of no concern to me anymore. He will take care of them. All He wants is for me to look in his wonderful face!!!

Oh, Kay! I'm so glad you came to my Blog today! Gladder still that the music blessed your soul. Sometimes in the midst of a horrid day, I come to my own blog and just listen! Nothing like that constant reminder from an old vintage songwriter who was blind herself to Turn our Eyes Upon Jesus. I'll be praying for you! I'm so glad we have run into each other! A new friend in Christ!

Kay- I found you from Cora at Country Patches and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed my visit.... that song is one of my favorites, too. I love your blog- I can almost smell all the wonderful soaps you have! (I'm sure they smell even better in person!) I just wanted to tell you I stopped by- see you again soon!!
