As I read the above passage of Scripture, I can't help but think of the words to the old hymn "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus."
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,Deuteronomy 6:5-9 stresses the importance of being completely and totally focused on the Lord at all times. The song "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" does that too, but it also tells us what the result of our intent focus on the Lord will be. It says, "And the things of earth will grow strangely dim." If we focus intently on the Savior, we cannot help but take our focus off the things of this old sinful world. As you go through this next week, allow me to challenge us all to simply turn our 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.
God allowed me to find the bellow video sometime last week. I know it is very old. I'm not even going to insist that you listen to the song at the end. However, please listen to Gloria as she speaks and ask God to speak to you through her words.
Note: This video is entitled "Things I Must Tell the Children." Don't let the title confuse you or get in your way. You don't have to be a parent to get something out of this video--I am a college student and the Lord has used this video in an awesome way in my life.
