This week Wendy Clift shares some thoughts to encourage and empower us to get through the next seven days as she chooses a few songs to help us in our times of worship
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4 vs 16 – 18
Fix your eyes on Jesus he has chosen you, anointed you and empowered you to do everything He has called you to do.
Fix your eyes on Jesus, not on others, not on your mistakes, not on your past, not on your disappointments, not on your failures, not on your regrets.
He is the author and finisher of your faith.
He who promised is faithful.
As you fix your eyes on Jesus then your focus changes to the eternal things and you find that you become less distracted. If ever there is a time that we need to remain steadfast and endure its today.
- Stay focused.
- Stay compassionate
- Stay vulnerable
- Stay humble
- Stay merciful
- Stay gracious
- Stay forgiving
- Stay generous
- Stay curious
- Stay gentle
- Stay patient
- Stay steadfast
- Stay strong
- Stay courageous
- Stay bold
The things that we see are temporary, but the things that are not seen are eternal.
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’ – Helen Howarth Lemmel (1922)
I’ve chosen a few songs to encourage our hearts this week. I pray as you listen that you will be blessed.
