HSCRC12 -hymn #2 Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

I finally carved out some time to get my page done for the HSCRC12 challenge that features Hymns of Faith. The hymn featured for this challenge was "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." I used a variety of stamps from many sources, but I really liked how this turned out.  I am going to cherish this project.
I think my favorite part of the lyrics of this hymn is "....and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace." So, is there really anything that will compare to His glory and His grace? Why do we find it so difficult to give up our worldly things when they wane in comparison to the things Christ will bring us to? We choose to stay lukewarm in our faith and stay in the comforts of what we know of this world, and too often turn from taking those leaps of faith to just trust in Christ, and so making that choice we turn away from some of our richest blessings available to us.
