In this world we face countless things which will distract us from focusing on God. Entertainment, work, success, friends and even family can divert our attention away from God and cause us to even shove Him aside.
Other times we are faced with insurmountable problems which overwhelm us. We don't know where to turn. There is no way to solve them and we are afraid and/or overcome with despair.
In our times of rejoicing and peace as well as in our times of hardship and grief we must remember to turn our eyes upon the One who will never leave nor forsake us. Jesus is the Prince of Peace and the Joy-Bringer! He is our strength when we are weak and fear cannot remain in His presence. He is our light in the darkest night and our peace in the midst of the even the greatest of storms.
Never give up and keep your eyes upon Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith!
