Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

So Lord, what do You want to talk about?

You, I love you. I want your heart toward Me. 

Lord, how can I turn my heart more toward You? turn your eyes upon Jesus

Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face.

But Lord, how?

To begin with,  look away from your cell phone. After all, your screen report said 6 hours a day. Do you spend 6 hours a day with Me?

No Lord.

Child, I want you to find your pleasure in My Presence, not your cell phone and not your food. But Me, I want you to find your pleasure in My Presence. 

But Lord, I need Your help. Show me how to turn away from all my bad habits, food, cell phone, and turn to You.

Child, 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. 

Child, the election doesn’t need you for I have already decided who it will be. But I need you. I need you to 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. 

Child, I need you.

But Lord, how do You need me? You are God and I am not. How do You need me?

Child, I need your love. I want your love, not your distractions. 

Lord, show me how.

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. 

turn your eyes upon Jesus

Lord, show me how? I’ve got devotionals and Your Bible. Is that how? Do I sing for You? Lord, show me how to turn my eyes upon Jesus.

Seek My Presence. Talk with Me throughout your day. Remember how you used to put an empty coffee cup on your table and sit there to talk with Me? Back then, you invited Me to be with you. But I want to be with you now. Invite Me into your day. 

You focus has been on your “to do” list, your menu plans, your grocery lists, your social media, your election, and your news. Focus on My Presence. Invite Me into your day, not just your morning “quiet” time.

Talk with Me about everything that concerns you. Then praise Me for the answers. Look to Me for your answers for I hold it all in MY HANDS. For I am in charge. Remember.

Turn you 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. 

Remember those people in your life that caused you so much stress and discomfort. 

Remember how I told you to thank Me for them. So you did, even though it was hard for you to find things to be thankful for. Then I turned things around. 

So now I tell you. When your eyes see things that are not right, evil things within your news, look for something to thank Me for. It may be hard, but there is always something to thank Me for.

If nothing else, thank Me that this evil is now being revealed in the light. Knowledge and truth about it is now coming forth. So thank Me for that. 

As you thank Me, I will turn things around just as I turned around the relationships of those who caused you stress. Now they cause you joy and laughter in friendship.

So now watch and see what I will do. 


Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lead not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5,6
