Focus

    As someone who loves photography, the word. "focus" has my attention.  You can try to capture a beautiful scene but if your picture is not in focus, then the finished result is not what it should be.  This is the same in my life. 
In Beth Moore's study "Believing God" Beth wrote, 
     "God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. When we choose to walk with God rather than off the path to handfuls of other options, we find His perfect will for our lives. We find out promised land. I have discovered that if Satan can't get to me with destruction, he will try to get to me with distraction. We have only one turn on this green earth. We will never get to do this again. We cannot do a hundred things to the glory of God, but we can certainly do a few. What you and I need is focus. Day in and day out. Eyes on the goal. In our frenzied life styles we are desperate for simplicity: for a hundred things to narrow down to one."
   As the Christmas season approaches, I want to focus on Christ not the distractions of the season.

"But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil. 3:13b-14.

  2. I'm always disappointed when I take a picture and find out that it was out of focus. Focus is so important. You're right. We need to not get distracted with everything going on in the season and forget who the focus should be on. This is a great reminder.
    Blessings,

  3. I want to stay focused on Him during this season also. He is my Pacesetter, Prince of Peace, and Put-things-in-Perspective God (all brought to you by the letter P :)
    Blessings.
