fixing my gaze

there are mornings when i wake up and the first thing on my mind is something temporal.
i really wish i could tell you that i always look to jesus and meditate on eternally important things.
but that simply isn't true.

i often find myself dwelling on my circumstances, good or ill.
and sadly, many times i allow them to direct the tone of my day.
there seems to be this process that i go through.
a daily series of events, before i really look to christ and rejoice in him,
no matter what unfolds around me.

when my life is stripped of comfort and certainty, that's what wakes my soul to god.
that's when i find myself getting serious with jesus. staying closer to him.
recognizing his power and glorious sovereignty over the purpose of my life.
