Where to Look

My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
Psalm 25:15 NIV
There is a point in your life when you realize that God is the only one who can release you from a snare. A small but strong string of hurt, fear or unforgiveness that has wrapped around your heart and is tripping you up or holding you back.  It might have been set by someone else by action or word or it may have been something you inadvertently set for yourself: an inner vow to never trust again or never ask for help because you got rejected last time you did.  It’s frustrating.  It can almost become crippling.
Here is the thing: 
The one who hurt you, can’t heal you.    
You think that if you hear the words “I’m sorry” that you will be healed but you will not.  You don’t need an apology to be whole, you need Jesus to make you whole. He is the only one who can heal your heart. He made it, will remake it and will continue to bring up the little snares that hold you back from who you are created to be.
Where are you looking for healing? Who are your eyes on? If they are anywhere else but on the Lord, you will be disappointed and frustrated.
Look to the Lord to release you from the snare that is holding you back.
What is that snare?
What is Jesus asking you to do about it?
