Look to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
What it means: Jesus is the ultimate example. The one we should all try to be like. He was and is pure in heart and as strong as gold. We place our eyes on earthly idols; celebrities, friends and other role models but sometimes forget it is JESUS to follow. This slowly becomes us worshiping other idols and follow THEIR lead. If we always fix our eyes on him, our whole life follows. Our words, thoughts, actions and prayers! My husband and I have found the more we fix our eyes on him the more he leads us. (and OH how he has led us in the last 9.5 months of marriage) Our only purpose on this earth is to GLORIFY God. Keep your eyes fixed on him in your mornings, your day, your evenings, your job, your family, your car ride, your grocery shopping, your cooking, your eating…..etc. Watch how this can change your life and your character to follow the one true example.
Side note: When starting this blog, I knew the competition in the fashion/lifestyle/travel world is huge! It was so hard starting out not being the huge techy person (or patient person) that I am coding a lot of this website on my own without a web designer and trying to just “be successful already.” I prayed on it and the Lord told me do not worry. Be you and follow me, for I will lead you there. Don’t try to be like any other successful bloggers because they are not you but be your own. I knew this was something that I would have to continually keep my eyes fixed on Jesus! SOMEHOW I managed to build an entire website with his help. I will still browse other websites to get experience advice but I try to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus as I do those things. This helps me not create a jealously, or idol view of anyone else. I encourage you if you are reading this to keep it in mind when browsing my page! We are all made beautifully and uniquely by him so I think THAT is the person we should try to be like. I love fashion and I love sharing my ideas but when you are shopping.. do it for YOU and to follow HIS lead, not mine!
Prayer: Lord I pray that we fix our eyes on you and only you. I pray that we live our lives to Glorify you and not ourselves or any other earthly idol. Our minds are so busy so I pray we let that all go and simply follow you. Lord work in us to crave you and see clearly. Amen.
