Thought of the Day June 12, 2023 Keep our eyes on the Lord

By 10:33 AM


There is this story from an Unknown Source that an old man was asked what had robbed him of joy the most in his lifetime. He replied, Things that never happened!” Somebody also has cited three keys to happiness: 1) Fret not, He loves you (John 13:1), 2) Faint not, He holds you (Psalm 139:10), 3) Fear not, He keeps you (Psalm 121:5).

What robs us of joy and inner peace is losing sight of God in our lives at the moments we most need him. There will always be situations that impact our lives. We have no control over them. What we have control of is whether our focus will be on the situation or on the person of Jesus Christ. He reminds us of his love, his presence and his strength. Focusing on these will help us, not to avoid situations, but to not be overwhelmed by them. He is true to his word and his promises.
