FYI: Posts will be sparse around here until I replace my laptop.... Coming back to work after Christmas break apparently was too hard and it quit on me!

Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus

Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus 
Helen H. Lemmel

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s 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;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conqu’rors 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!

Peace I trust Him

It has been really quiet here the past several months. Lots of changes have been going on in my life and there are even more in the near future. I would like to continue to blog, but I'm not sure how consistent I'll be at  posting. I'll be graduating in a month, my family is moving across the country, and I have to make decisions about what I'm going to do this next year and the ones to come.

Yet I know my Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. I may be uncertain of what the future holds, but I am certain of Him. My eyes have been opened to the glory of God and His grace is sufficient to meet my every need.

Psalm 61:1-4
Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

He has always been faithful to me in the past, and I know He will continue to be faithful in the future. His love never fails.

In every change / He faithful will remain
