Day 4: Fixable Peace


You FIX YOUR EYES

on the sun like it is for the very first time.

The cameras click

taking the same picture over and over again

because its beauty is overwhelming.

It happens every night

as it sets

and

sheds colors that illuminate the horizon.

The water glistens as it catches the rays.

You FIX YOUR EYES

and are so still that nothing else matters.

You don't want it to end

and it does

until the morning when it will do the opposite

as it rises

and many will FIX THEIR EYES

on the same sun

that rises and sets

every day

and never stops.

Can it be that easy?

Can we FIX OUR EYES

on the STILLNESS OF PEACE

that takes us beyond

our own senses

so that we are brought into a different world

that we become so rebellious against

FEAR

DOUBT

ANXIETY

WORRY

DESPAIR

because we have turned away

like

a PRODIGAL~

but from the joy stealers of life

of every disruptive distraction

as we do the one simple thing

and

FIX OUR EYES ON JESUS~

the ONE who is walking on water

and calls us to do the same

even though it appears to be impossible.

But then it happens

as JOY paves our path

so that we just can't

so that we just won't

take our eyes off the

SON who never sets

because HE always RISES

in spaces and places of our heart

that we never thought would ever be

resurrected again.

So LIVING as a PRODIGAL~

"Joyously Unrestrained and Enthusiastic"

"Exuberant"

"Extreme or Excessive" (Webster)

is not just a possibility but a certainty

and it starts with one simple

rebellious step~

"[looking away from all that will distract us and]

focusing our eyes on JESUS, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith.." (Hebrews 12:2 AMP)

so that JESUS leads us

HOMEWARD BOUND

in the here and now

into

HIS PERFECT PEACE.

Oh there's no place like HOME

therefore

"I'LL FIX MY EYES" (listen to the song below)
