Hymn and Scripture Challenge #2 - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Good Sunday Morning everyone!  I am so excited to be able to share my next Hymn and Scripture Challenge with you!  The Hymn that Patter chose this time is "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus."  And what a beautiful hymn it is!  To see Patter's post and to join her in this new year's Scripture Challenge see her post of Challenge 2 here! Such a wonderful write up she posted and one you must read.

My page is a little feminine, but I just wanted to show so much how this song spoke to me and it was meant just for me this week.  Why, because when we keep our eyes on Jesus, then we will keep ourselves in His will and in His Word and the peace that comes from Him is unbelievable! I just love reading the Bible as it teaches me each and every time I open it.  The verse I chose for this challenge is: "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:18."  You see we have to keep our eyes focused on heaven since that is our eternal home.  We might not see him daily face to face, but I assure you that I feel him daily walking with me and showing me what is right and what is wrong and giving me the strength and courage to continue on!  He can do the same for you!  Here is a beautiful rendition of this beautiful song!  

So here is my page and hope you enjoy it!


Thanks for stopping by today!  

My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up! was used to make this page!

Oh Jonia, this is so lovely!! I love the little image. That song is a fav of mine, too. And I don't know how I missed this particular post but I wrote down the chorus of the song for Robyn on her blog when she had posted that Brenda had passed. This has been a week of "God moments" for me!

Ohhh I love this. I want to make my pages today!! Can the housework wait? I better pick up a bit and then play! Thanks for the inspiration. I love this hymn, it reminds me of my dad as we sang it at his funeral 10 years ago. I picture him with Jesus every time I hear it. ~ Abby
