Life is in a constant state of flux. Gazing on God restores balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Just as we fix our gaze on a steadfast point in balancing postures to steady ourselves, we fix our gaze on Jesus, our steadfast point, to balance our lives. Those of us who claim God as our Father are invited to position ourselves to trust Jesus as the center of our lives. Jesus, creator of balance, wholeness, and healing is our supporter and ally in times of unsteadiness. As we mindfully set our gaze on Him, he cultivates and completes us, restoring us in a way we can never do ourselves. Jesus fixed His gaze on the Father through a life of trials and turbulence because He knew the joy awaiting Him. Because of this He is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Hebrews 12:2
