    LOOK FORWARD

    Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
    PROVERBS 4:25

    When I was in high school, I was quite a runner. Day after day I would train, running seventeen miles in the morning and seventeen miles at night. I ate all of the proper foods, took good care of myself, got plenty of rest, and I followed the instructions of my coaches. One of the most important instructions they ever gave me was: When You're in the race, keep your head straight and look forward. Never turn your head. If you do, you'll break your stride, and it could cost you the race. I saw it happen time and time again. Runners would cast just a quick glance over their shoulders to see where the other runners were, and that was all it took. They would stumble, lose concentration, and the other runners would catch up and pass.

    The rule is one that we, as Christians, should learn to follow. As long as we keep our eyes on Jesus, we will do fine. It is when we are distracted, when we lose sight of God in our lives, that we get ourselves into trouble. "The rule is a simple one, but an important one: "Let thine eyes look right on" (Proverbs 4:25) right on Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Keep our sight straight, almighty God. Let us see only You in our lives. Make us aware of Your presence every day, and never let us turn our eyes from You. Be the vision of our lives. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
