There are so many things to distract us in life -- some good, some not so good. We can allow ourselves to become overinvolved in service to the Lord God or we can allow ourselves to become overwhelmed by difficult people and our painful circumstances.
God's Word tells us to turn our eyes away from worthless things (Psalm 119:37). And a few psalms later, the psalmist says, "I lift up my eyes to the hills -- where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." ~ Psalm 121:1-2)
Dear ones, WHATEVER is going on in your life today, whatever distractions you have in your life right now, let me encourage you to lay them aside for a few moments and give all your attention and worship to our Savior and King. Turn your eyes upon the only One Who is worth looking to: Jesus.
"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
