The morning sky took my breath away! Just a regular suburban street, but for now it blazed with color and light.
Glancing down to navigate the steps, the concrete greyness lay in stark contrast.
Life is like that sometimes. The destination of my gaze affects my senses, emotions and mind, either in positive exhilaration or dismal negativity.
Faith directs the gaze up to God, to His positive promises, to His glory and beauty. Doubt and unbelief bring a greyness to the soul like the cold grey concrete.
At times the journey requires and sometimes demands a glance at the greyness confronting me, but a renewed and determined upward gaze fixed on the goodness of God restores His light to my eyes and is a lamp to my pathway.
“looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2 ASV
