We fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. - Hebrews 12:2

Dear Jesus,

It's so easy to focus on all my own efforts. I'm so addicted to believing in myself. But you are the author and perfecter of my faith. I believe because I have you as the God who made me and the man who saved me. You ran the race of life before me and never once failed. You saved my soul and you stand at the end of my race waiting to greet me with your triumphant arms. I will fix my eyes on you when I have guilt, temptation, fear, doubt or fatigue. I will fix my eyes on you when I face frightening medical problems. I will fix my eyes on you when others criticize me. I will fix my eyes on you when I am passed over for a job. I will fix my eyes on you when a business deal goes poorly. I will fix my eyes on you when my closest loved ones pass over to you. I will fix my eyes on you when my church struggles to triumph in love. I will fix my eyes on you when I feel lonely and depressed. I am saved and I'm going to win this race because you are there to make me a winner.

Amen

You will become what you look at the most. So look the most to the One you want to become like.
