Dear God-tracker


In 1922 Helen Lemmel wrote a wonderful song, still sung extensively today. In the chorus she wrote:

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.

The scriptures put it this way: "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

I know of a woman who, together with her family, deeply loved and served the Lord. We'll call her Jan. Sadly Jan had a slow degenerate disease that was to eventually take her life. However, as a young woman she married a loving man and had two wonderful children. Her children grew up to know and love Jesus, too. One day her 21-year old son, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, was coming home late one night and had an accident that took his life. The family was devastated but Jan held them together with the hope that only Jesus can offer. Shortly afterward her daughter married and left home. It was then that her husband had an extra marital affair and left Jan to marry another woman. Jan was left alone and dejected with a debilitating disease. As the years rolled by she became increasingly ill until, in her mid-60s, Jan passed away.

A sad life, indeed. Or was it? Throughout her trials right up until her last breath Jan never denied her Lord. She remained true to worshipping and loving God with all her heart, soul and flesh. She always had faith, hope and cheer and, in spite of her circumstance, she acknowledged the Lord every day, walking in his tender care. Jan kept her eyes on Jesus and in her times of deepest despair she would sing, "I turn my eyes upon Jesus and the things of the earth grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace."

It could be that you're going through a Jan experience today. Perhaps you've been deserted or rejected by a loved one. Maybe you've suffered loss and bereavement. Possibly you've lost your security and tomorrow looks a little less than rosy from where you're standing today. When you feel as though the cords of death have entangled you and you're being overcome by trouble and sorrows, call on his name. The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion and will deliver you, always!

So continue to acknowledge the Lord in all your ways, keep your eyes on Jesus and scorn that cross ahead of you. Hold onto the promises of God through every trial, standing in the authority of his name and his word to save, deliver and heal you. Remember, Jesus is already on the other side of your tomorrow meeting your every need.

God-tracking is walking in the light of his glory and grace.

Quote of the Week
Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes

"Deliverance is always found on the 'mount'; living faith must first prove to God that it has taken his word and promise for victory." --- Rees Howels

Don't Give Up, Look Up!
Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus!

Help me face tomorrow, Lord, in your glory and grace

"So here I am again, Lord, desperate for your help. I admit that I can't face these difficulties in my own strength; I need your strength. So I choose to give up on my own efforts to get through this mess and put my confidence in your power to save, deliver and heal me. I turn my eyes upon Jesus and look full in his wonderful face. I acknowledge you in all my needs and believe that you will meet them according to your riches in Jesus. Help me face tomorrow, Lord, in your glory and grace. Amen."
