January is a Gateway

As you are now entering the middle of your work week, may you receive empowerment to continue moving forward in your assignments and endeavors.  Your work matters to the world.  Thank you for what you do.  Your labors are not in vain.

The month of January is a “gateway”.  It is an entrance to a new year, a new chapter, a new beginning.  What we do during this pivotal month usually sets the tone for the year we are currently entering.  We revere it by making new pledges, commitments, resolutions, dreams, etc.  Many times by doing so, we think nothing of it.  It’s tradition.  It’s what we normally do.  It’s our starting point, our mark, the stall through which we are launched.  

With that being shared, let’s take a moment to think about our eyes.  Yes, our eyes.  Herman Melville wrote in one of his novels, “The eyes are the gateway to the soul.”  The Bible shares in Matthew 6:22 the eyes are the lamp to the body.

Based upon what you have allowed your eyes to gaze upon, what new commitments, pledges, resolutions, dreams have you made an alliance with?  We may not realize it, but whatever the eyes see that is what the mind has tendency to believe.  It is important that we fix our eyes not on the things that are temporal- momentary cares or woes.  We must fix our eyes on those things that are unseen- hope and faith.  From their we can come into alignment with the truth, the real plan of God. 

Be careful not to get distracted from things that you should not fix your eyes upon.  Like a horse with blinders only look ahead in the direction that the Spirit of God is leading you- not to the right or left.  May the gateway of your eyes see only the glory of God manifest in your soul.

Fix your eyes on the Author and Finisher of your faith.  May this “gateway” month launch you into whatever your eyes can see!  Keep looking up.  It’s a good time to be you!
