Clothed with Grace: Fix My Eyes

Fix My Eyes

One song that has been running though my head lately is "Fix My Eyes" by King and Country. Take a listen!

         

 The author is singing about wanting to rewind back to past and fix the mistakes he's made and instead choose this:

"Love like I'm not scared
Give when it's not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on You
On You"

It can be so hard to look back at the mistakes we've made, or are currently making. We can't change the past, but with Jesus we can impact our future.  Once we ask for forgiveness, all of our past mistakes are forgotten. We get a fresh start! I feel so much joy in that.  2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old is gone, the new is here!"

Thinking back to the lyrics above, I know I haven't done everything the author wishes he'd done earlier, but I can do those things today, and you can too. How much better would each day be if we spent it with our eyes fixed on Jesus. 

He'll set our paths straight.

He's our light in the darkness.

He is the there to carry our burdens, when the are simply too heavy.



So, this dress has a sailboat print on it, and that's amazing. I scored it on thredUP with credits and it was new with tags. (use this thredUP link to get $10 off your first order) It's super comfy and I'm not sure why I haven't really tried wrap dress before, silly me. Old Navy has similar ones right now in some really cute prints. I also got this denim jacket from thredUP last fall and it's been one of the most versatile pieces in my closet.

I've also been wearing my Kendra Scott necklace from Rocksbox like crazy.  I'm not saying I'm over statement necklaces, I still have my fair share, but I am all about the dainty details right now.  Use code "newfavoriteoutfitxoxo" at checkout for one month free of Rockbox and get to try out beautiful pieces like this for yourself.
