Fix My Eyes (#cmworship #WorshipWednesday)

Ladies, do you ever feel like you’re in a funk? There’s nothing particularly wrong, but nothing is particularly right. Nothing exciting or thrilling is happening. Sometimes good things are happening, but you’re still not just feeling it. There could be a million reasons why you’re feeling this way. Sometimes, you just need a little change in perspective.

This is how I found myself this week. I was tired. We’d had a couple of days of an inexplicably unhappy baby. He’s good now, but I was still out of it. I didn’t even want to do some of the things that make me happy like writing or cooking. If it wasn’t for a little boy depending on me, I probably would have just laid around watching movies. (That still sounds wonderful!) Then I sat down because I had to work on Color Movement’s Praise series. I swear, this ministry does so much more for me than I could ever do for it. Just sitting here thinking about praising Him shook me out of my mood. Why was I so blah? There was so much to jump for joy for! There is so much to be thankful for today and tomorrow. There is always so much to praise Him for.

As I talked about last week, sometimes it’s hard to praise Him when you’re in the lowest places in life, but sometimes its hard to praise Him when everything is just blah. These are the times when you don’t have much to praise for, but you don’t have much to pray for either. These are the times in life I find that I am most vulnerable to disconnecting from God.

With all of this in mind, this week, I chose the song “Fix My Eyes” by For King & Country. This band is one of my favorites generally, but I love this song because I can jam out to it. That alone lifts my spirits, but its message gets to the point of my message this week.

No matter where you are in life, whether you’re down, up, or just in the blah, focus on Him.

“Hit rewind
Click delete
Stand face to face with the younger me
All of the mistakes
All of her heartbreak
Here’s what I’d do differently

I’d love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on you, on you”

We’d all love to do the many great things mentioned in this song, but the point is that to do all of these, to do them well, and to do them properly, we must be focused on God. Focusing on Him is what gives our lives purpose and meaning. It’s what gets us out of our funk and puts us right where He wants us to be.

“Love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on you, on you”

Ladies, what I needed was a perspective adjustment. When my life felt blah, I was failing to see all the blessings I had. I had my faith, my marriage, my family. By focusing on God, I didn’t just feel better, but I was able to be better. I could love my husband better through service. I could be more patient with my son. He empowered me, even through the smallest things. What in the world do I not have to praise Him about?

Our Lord is so good, ladies. He is great. Fix your eyes on Him. There is nothing more beautiful to behold.

“I fix my eyes on you, on you
I fix my eyes on you, on you”
