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.




Life is one blazing, bold, and ecstatic adventure. And yet it is nothing at all if we don't have God. 100% of our possessions, our time, our feeble efforts, our talents, our pursuits, even our lives; all of it should be completely devoted to Him. So many times we forget how empty and pointless our existence is when we don't make time for Him, when we chase after the insubstantial things this world has to offer. I know I'm certainly guilty of it, and I realize that I'll never be perfect. All I can do is fall to my face each time He speaks to me, each time He answers a prayer or gives me that incredible, life-altering joy. Oh you guys.... if you have never experienced the fullness and beauty of the joy of God, you have never lived for a second compared to those few moments. I'm crying even right now for all of you who have never felt that. I beg you to ask God to show Himself to you in that way... ask for His joy. I pray Nehemiah 8:10 over all of you, pray it over yourselves as well. Be filled up and encouraged like never before.


Oh gosh..... we all need this so badly in a world as dark as ours.
