Going deeper...

The devotion hit me hard today... oh, nothing I didn't already know but something I was reminded of(as my husband so wisely said) when things are right in front of your face it is hard to see them or to have a more Christ-like perspective. So after a heavy weekend of trials I pray a prayer that within minutes is being read in my devotional almost word for word. I love how God works. Constantly reaffirming who He is and what He has done for us. I feel really sorry for those who miss that blessing and go through life feeling lost, abandoned, and empty. I am reminded daily to pray for those who don't know Christ in a personal way. So in the midst of work issues, an accident, personal attacks(sometimes feels constant) and feeling yuck from too much consumption of things I don't consider real food anymore I refocus on the perfect light in my life Jesus. He was there this morning in the falling flower petals, in the fog that covered all of the business of people and He is the word that comforts my soul. Circumstances are in flux, the world whizzes around you and everyone has a personal perspective that can cause conflict and pain. It is comforting to know that God never changes His mind or His promises. This year I think my theme song is "Turn your eyes upon Jesus". I am reminded often to refocus back to Jesus. 
Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
