With everything that’s going on in today’s world and in our personal lives, it’s easy to lose focus sometimes. We tend to get engulfed in everything around us and get off the path that the Lord has put us on.
Now more than ever, we must stay focused on our path and keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior. He knows exactly what’s going on around us more than we do Crazy, right? But it’s true!
Look, I know it sounds crazy but, it’s the truth. I myself struggle with staying focused. My plate is full to the max! I have my seven month teething twins, my hyper active five-year-old, and my three-year-old(Hurricane Isaac) that refuses to go potty in the toilet. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also my fifteen-year-old. You know as well as I do that teenagers are a whole another species of their own! Plus, my phone rings off the hook with bill collectors demanding money that we just don’t have at this time. So believe me when I tell you to stay focused, I completely understand it can be oh so difficult. It’s difficult but, sweetheart, IT AIN’T IMPOSSIBLE! Why? Because nothing is impossible with God! You can take that to the bank!
When you find yourself losing focus, stop and breathe. Completely surrender yourself to God. Pray for strength, knowledge, and understanding for the things you CAN control. Then, honey, THAT’S IT! Let God do His thing!
God does some pretty miraculous things, my friend. I’ve seen it with my own eyes in my personal life. You will see it as well if you allow yourself to…
So remember, stay focused. Keep your eyes on the Lord. Keep pushing forward as back is NOT an option!!
And set your minds and keep them set on what is above(the higher things), not on the things that are on earth.
