I wonder if any other Christian out there loses focus on Christ as often as I do. It seems they have it all together. Read the Bible, do devotions ( alone and with your spouse and with your kids ), read some great books about Christian living and feel God's presence always. Seriously, I lose focus so often and I sure don't do the Christian things everyday like I should. Truthfully, some days I don't even want to. It is so easy to make life about me and what I deserve.
It seems like all the issues I have and talk to with my counselor come down to one thing and one thing only; and that is my focus or well, lack of focus I should say. I want to live totally and 100% for Christ but I can't do that if I'm not focused on Him in EVERYTHING I do. The thing is, if we aren't focused on Christ then we are focused on ourselves and unless you are your own god ( which I totally disagree on ) then we aren't going to get this right or I should say, we sure won't find the joy that we are all looking for in life. Maybe joy will come temporary but for eternal joy we need Christ. For the abundant life, we need Christ. He needs to be our center. Oh how I struggle with accepting this even though I know it to be true. UGH
So, I guess it is refocus time for me. My focus this week has been on temporary things that will not last into eternity ( but are still important in living life )...BUT my mind is tiny and multitasking does not work for me well at all. So, I will put my hope, my focus, my future in Jesus and make a web from there. My son calls them brain storm webs. :) One again I will start here and hopefully my focus will stay for just a little longer.
Thank you Lord for grace. Thank you that even though I fail over and over you continue to love me, guide me and allow me to start OVER. Thank you for the mercy you extend to me even though I am so undeserving of it. You are AMAZING!!
