My Resolutions: Resolution Eighteen...Looking Unto Jesus.

"Resolution Eighteen: 
Resolved, to live so at all times, as I think is best in my devout frames, and when I have clearest notions of things of the gospel, and another world." ― Jonathan Edwards. 

“Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs.”  Jonathan Edwards.

In an ever-changing world, may I not be swept away by the things that change. Lord, help me be anchored in place by the things that do not change. Grant me eyes to always see what is real, and not be swept away by the mirage and the smoke life imposes on me.

Help me see all things through your eyes, and in the face of eternity. May eternity always be my measure. May I never lose sight of the transient nature of life.


“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” ― 2 Corinthians 4:18, NKJV.

“That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,” ― Ephesians 4:14, NKJV.

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” ― Colossians 3:2, NKJV.

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” ― Hebrews 6:19-20, NKJV.

“But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.” ― 1 Peter 4:7, NKJV. 
Knowing what I know, and being one who is subdued to the constitution of the Kingdom, this is my resolve: 

My Resolution:

"Resolved: That I shall always fix my eyes on Jesus and eternity in all things and at all times. These will always be my balance in all things and at all times.” ― St. Akin de Sage. 

This is my resolve. So, help me, God. 

The Saint.
