Turn Your Eyes Upon ... Jesus!





The Flash was Bright
The Spectacle Light
And that Light
Behind Darkest Dimmers 
Fair to Right Blinded Me!

The Spectacle
That Show
The Purveyors of Sin Heaven Knows
Fair Left Me To Truth Disoriented
As Living Swill to Me 
They Unrelentingly 
Daily Presented!

Pretty, Pretty, Light!!
Those Colors
Strobing 
Stroking Me
In My Dark Night
Instead of Guiding My Footsteps Aright
To My Death and 
Eternal Destruction
Led Me
Stomach Roiling
Steps Wobbling
To The Precipice Drear and
I Know ... Desperation!
I Know ... Fear!

In My Sorrows and
In Fear
In Desperation of Soul
I Will Declare
I Called and
I Called Out:


"IS Anyone ...
IS A Savior ...
Near?!"

"No one could be here!
Oh,  Lord, I'm Alone!
Who will Care for This One
Lost ... and so Very Alone?"


And in My Own Last Strength

Huh?!?

I Heard ... ¿??!¿!

I Heard Me a Quiet Voice:



"Turn Your Eyes Toward My Voice!
Look Upon Me - Even Though You Can't See!
I Have True Light and
I Provide Peace and
I Offer Rest!
I Offer You My Living Place 
So
Look in Faith
Toward The Cleft In The Rock - Follow My Voice!
Hold Out Your Hand!
Don't Look Down!
Don't Look Around!
Reach for Me!
I AM Holding You!
You Can't Fall!
My Grip is Everlasting Sound
Heaven Strong
By Grace - Profound
And FYI, It Is Eternity Long!
Trust Me!
I Can't Let You Drown!"


He'd said: "Turn!"

I Physically Turned My Body and 
Looked ...

He said:  "Look Upon ...!"

I looked Up and 
Locked On!

MY Eyes ...
It is My Decision
To Trust Him
Whom I Can't Physically See, See!
If I don't - I'm Already Dead Anyway!
What He's Saying 
Sounds Like Love To Me!

I Must Say I have
My Death to Lose and
His Life to Gain
IF
IF
IF
I
DO
What He - The Voice
In My Dark Light
Night Blindness
Says!

I Squeezed My Blind Eyes
Tight Shut!

He IS Talking to Me!

I hold My Breath for
I am Listening!

The Lord Must Be Here
In The Depths of This Hell Where I Be
Surrounded by a Light by which I can't See
So
I Reached Out!

The Great Hand - I Feel It
IS Touching 
Holding 
Carrying Me!

I Opened My Eyes!
Lord of Heaven!
It's Indeed Jesus Christ
The Author Finisher of My Little Faith!

I Bless Him and Confess
That 
Without Him 
I'd be a Crumpled, Dead Mess!

I'm Glad I Answered His Call and 
Got Off
The Hell-Spun
Stomach-churning
Head-Spinning 
Soul-darkening 
Disco Ball!






Turning Our Eyes Upon Jesus 
Literally Means 
Turning Our Backs To The World
Taking Our Sight Away from What Is Only At Our Feet
And 
Casting Our Gaze Upon Him Who Lifts Our Heads
And 
Will Carry Us - Bodily - Home To His Glory
And
Hanging On To Him
for
Eternal Life!

*******

Drop The Brassy Ring
and
Hold Out Your Heart
for
Your Gold Crown!

*******

Look Up

and

Depend On Jesus 

and 

YOU WILL LIVE!!
