As we go through our day-to-day business we can many times take our eyes off of Jesus. We get so focused on work, family, social issues, health issues, the list is long. It is nothing to feel ashamed of, or frustrated about. What I have learned as I grow stronger in my walk with Christ, is the discovery of new ways to bring my focus back to where it belongs.
We can all face struggles and hardships that can seem so overwhelming, but in the middle of what seems the darkest place in your life there is hope, love and joy. I have learned this so well over the years and I am still learning. But as I take each day I have learned that they are always better when I take time to look up instead of focusing completely on the things that are coming at me.
When we focus on the things we hear on the news, social media, personal struggles, illness, etc. we can begin to lose focus on Jesus. Take time in the middle of your day, to just stop and thank God that you are alive, that you have a place to live, a job or anything else. Breathe deep and just look up at the beauty in the sky, ponder on how God makes clouds so that they float and don’t drop to the earth. Look at how the mountains and the trees stand tall to worship our Lord Jesus. We should be doing that as well. You will feel and see a difference as it takes you off of the things around you. It breaks through the lies that you may be believing.
