Day 6: Turn Your Eyes

      Today was a perfect fall day!  Chilly, breezy, orange and yellow leaves floating down from the  trees and dancing in the wind.  I even pulled my brown corduroy jacket out of the closet and wore my suede boots for the first time this season!  Tomorrow there is a street fair in downtown Nyack, for which I am very excited!  Fall is such a happy time of year! 
      This weekend, the words to the song, "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" have been running through my head over and over.  Along with the song, God impressed upon my heart the truth that He never runs out.  Of anything.  Ever.  He has no lack.  There truly is "fullness of joy in His presence (Psalm 16:11)."  



O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There's light for a look at the Saviour,
And life more abundant and free:

Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conqu'rors we are!

Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

His word shall not fail you He promised;
Believe Him and all will be well.
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
