What does it mean for us to keep our eyes on Jesus throughout the day?
That’s exactly what we’re answering over at the Graham Blanchard blog today. This is what it looks like for me:
Keeping my eyes on Jesus looks like turning on worship music when my soul feels tired.
It looks like breathing prayers of “help!” and prayers of “thanks” a gazillion times a day.
It looks like turning to prayer before making a big parenting decision, and it looks like turning to my child to ask forgiveness when I lost my temper.
It looks like Wednesday morning Bible studies and sipping steamy cups of hot tea while I read my Bible and the kids watch Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.
It looks like staying up way too late to read a book that is nourishing to my soul.
It looks like reminding myself that my kids are not my trophies, that they are dearly loved children of God, and that He has created them with a beginning and middle and end in mind that I don’t control.
It looks like remembering that life is not a contest of who has the best birthday parties or whose home is the cutest or who has the most well behaved kids. It looks like remembering the only race I’m in has to do with keeping my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith.
