Turn my eyes and seek first the Kingdom of God – Annette Peterson

24 February, 2020

Unless we are focused upon Him from where all goodness emanates, how can we do good? I can attribute over 100 scriptures this image, but particularly in Psalm 119:37, “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things and give me life in your ways,” and “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added,” Matt 6:33. This is an image given by grace. Last September, my husband and I were staying at a hotel and I happened to walk past him and noted the light was just so eminent and tangible, just as when we have relationship with God, and my husband was sitting there, so humble and wistful at that moment that I felt was perfect to respond to this year’s theme.
