When it seems impossible Jesus wants us to look to Him. Look to Him when it is appears too difficult and you’re disappointed. Look to Him when you are tempted to settle for second best in your life.

The bible says, “He gives life to the dead and call things that are not as though they were,” and to, “lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and to run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith“. ((Romans 4:17; Hebrews 12:2)
Jesus came and gave His best – Himself. He is the ultimate positive thinker. He challenged traditions, and mindsets, stood up to hypocrisy and reached out to the lost, the hurting and the unaccepted. He is our example, our guidepost and our benchmark and with Him enabling us we can always do more.

Prayer: Jesus I choose to fix my eyes upon you and to set you as my example. I want to live a life “happening” to things, rather than waiting for things to happen to me. Please lead, guide and strengthen me to live my best life. In Jesus name Amen.
