Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Dear Friends,

Thank you for stopping by. Thanks for all your prayers and encouragements. I thank God for everyone of you.

I do apologize once again for my inability to visit your blogs yet. I missed all of you and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am not able to return to active blogging yet as I am still learning to pace myself and there are much to be done with the things on hand.

During this period of short break from blogging the Lord has continue to deal graciously with me.

This morning the Lord filled my heart with praise and thanksgiving as I recounted afresh His goodness and mercies in giving me rest and salvation while I was yet a sinner and my soul was weary with sins.

After saving me, He continues to give me rest in Him along this pilgrim journey. My walk with the Lord has many ups and downs but I have found the rest that our Lord spoke about and He gives me strength for each new day.

So I could not resist but post my Word-Filled Wednesday and Thankful Thursday to share with you God's goodness and mercies to me, and to us who belong to Him!

♥ I am thankful to God that He bids us to come to Him and He promised to give us rest.

If you are labouring under the burdens of sin or cares of the world, sickness, troubles, and other burdens, may you come unto our Lord Jesus Christ and find the rest that is in Him. For He has promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) because He has loved us with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3)

♥ I am thankful to God for the abundant life that He has given to us when we trust in Him. Though in this life we have many ups and downs, God is in control and He is lovingly working all things for His glory and our good (Romans 8:28)

♥ I am thankful to God that when we turn our eyes upon our Lord Jesus Christ, the things on this earth then seems strangely dim. Thank God that we can have the blessed hope of being in eternity with Him to worship Him, enjoy His love and fellowship. Let us then run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith.

♥ I am thankful to God for blessing me with my family who love me, a church who loved Christ and me, and so many friends and blogging friends who love Christ and me. I thank God for each and everyone of you! May God bless you always in your kindness to me.

Hope this encouraging hymn will bring comfort and encouragement to us as we remember afresh God's love for us in giving us the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins and to reconcile us to Him. When we are weary and troubled, let us Turn our eyes unto Jesus.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!


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.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!


His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!


May God continue to bless you with His love and mercies today and every day :)
