Fixing my eyes on Jesus

One of my favorite authors is Anne Ortlund - She is so practical and so Godly. I love her books "Children are wet cement" and "Fix your eyes on Jesus". This morning I read a chapter from "Fix your eyes on Jesus". This is what it said -

"You get no forgiveness from just looking at all your sins. You get no healing, just concentrating on your diseases. You get no redemption, just studying the pit you're in. You get no crowning with glory, just fixing your eyes on your failures. You get no fulfillment of desires, just looking at all you don't have. You get no renewal from focusing on your oldness, staleness, dryness.

Only HE

forgives all your sins, heals all your dieseases, redeems your life from the pit, crowns you with love and compassion, satisfies your desires with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:3-5)

Only HE! "
