14 May Change Your Focus
We have all taken blurry pictures at one time or another. Usually, in our rush to capture the moment we don’t give enough time for our camera (or phone) to bring the scene into focus. We are left with an ambiguous blur, with colors and indistinct shapes alluding to what the photographer was attempting to capture. But because it doesn’t look or capture the original intent we delete it. Why? Because no one can appreciate a picture that you can’t see. Focus is important. We must shift our focus back to God so that He can perfect us. Moment by moment, day by day, week by week, year by year, if we learn to focus on him we can find our strength in Him. There is such comfort in knowing that he has already been where we are going. God continues to provide all the spiritual blessings we need during the ups and downs, the joys and challenges of this earthly life.
And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Prayer: Lord my focus is on you. Help me to keep my eyes heart and spirit focused on you. Forgive me when I try to do things on my own.
