Look to the Lord

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (Hebrews 12:2-3)  Where is our focus in life?  Inevitably, life is filled with struggles and trials.  My advice: "Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always." (Psalm 105:4)  Jesus said that in this world we will have trouble but He encouraged us to take heart because He has overcome the world (John 16:33b).  Let's look to Him and His strength, instead of our temporary troubles.

I almost didn't find the comment button...

this is gorgeous and what a great commentary...a reminder to look to HIM...He is in control...He is our help, our strength...seeking Him should be the first thing we do every morning and then throughout the day...

I love how WFW brings His Word to life in new ways!

Love the picture!

Thanks for sharing

I just and in awe of the picture and verse you chose! They truly compliment each other and really reach out and grab you - or at least they did me. That picture could have been me, as a child, and the verse is what I'm striving for now, as an adult! It actually brings tears to my eyes. Thanks so much for participating and sharing this. :-)

Oops, it was supposed to be "am in awe" instead of "and in awe". Makes more sense that way. LOL!

So so true. Love that picture -- looking to our Lord in this day and age is the only way. Blessings on this WFW!
