All week, I’ve thought about this chapter on focus (Chapter 1 in Finally Free by Kim Tabor), and yet all week, I’ve been distracted.
Too many things are competing for my attention…
Illness and exhaustion
Back pain and heating pads
Issues and arguments
…and I’m struggling to keep my eyes on Jesus.
But even while I’ve been overwhelmed, and not even sure of what to pray, God has ways of bringing my attention—my focus—back to Him and His goodness.
A perfectly timed message from a friend asking how I was and what she could pray for…was just what I needed.
New writing opportunities to consider…giving me something else to think about.
Someone putting this quote by Sarah Young in front of me…
“You are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to Face with Me, your Peace. As long as you focus on Me, you are safe. If you gaze too long at the myriad problems around you, you will sink under the weight of your burdens. When you start to sink, simply call out ‘Help me, Jesus!’ and I will lift you up.” ~Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
…the reminder I needed at just the right time.
I don’t know where your focus is or what distractions you are facing, but is He trying to pull your attention back to Jesus too?
