Focus is a word that gets thrown around a lot. But I think at times it is difficult for people to do.
Focus! It is a real desire to find something. Clarity comes from focus. Focus doesn’t have a deadline. Aristotle said, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
When we are focused — really focused — we commit to the work; we commit to the direction. Focus takes time and a commitment towards the goal. So, let’s begin to be committed to focus on God and His word. He did say, “All things are possible to them that believe” (Mark 9:23).
What we focus on could determine our attitude. If we focus on all the inequities in life, we will tend to be cynical, disillusioned. But if we focus on that which is good, true, right, pure, lovely, and admirable, we will tend to have a better outlook on life (Phil. 4:8). If we focus on God and His word, our attitudes will be so much healthier. We will begin to see what is possible instead of seeing only the road blocks. We will experience greater hope for all of our tomorrows instead of hopelessness. What we focus on, give our attention to, does determine our outlook on life.
It’s our choice what we choose to focus on. So, let’s choose God.
Just a thought,
