Focusing on Him

by | Oct 20, 2013 | God, Jesus, me, schedule

This is crazy. Another week has passed me by. How can it continue to be so busy? I don’t understand it. I’ve put my priorities in order. I’m working where I believe God wants me to be. I come home exhausted, and want to do nothing but rest. I’m not getting enough sleep at night, and I wake up tired. I start the whole process all over again. Next thing I know, a week has passed. Something needs to change.

Please don’t get me wrong. I’m finding lots of joy in my days. But I just don’t like the feeling of life passing me by. Seriously…how can it be October 20 already?

I’ve deliberately chosen this weekend to slow down. And let me tell you, it feels good. I’ll share more about my day with Bill yesterday in another post. It was wonderful.

I’m reminded of Tuesday’s devotion from Jesus Calling. “Many voices clamor for your attention, enticing you to go their way. A few steps away from your true path are pits of self-pity and despair, plateaus of pride and self-will. If you take your eyes off Me and follow another’s way, you are in grave danger. Even well-meaning friends can lead you astray if you let them usurp My place in your life. The way to stay on the path of Life is to keep your focus on me. Awareness of My Presence is your best protection.”

Keep focusing on Him. That’s the answer. Maybe I’ve momentarily taken my eyes off of Jesus, and put them on my work, my duties, the demands of my job, the things that are pressing in upon me. I’m done with all of that. Done.

One day at a time. Keep focusing on Him. Embrace all He has for me.

If you’re feeling like I’m feeling at all, I’m praying this encourages you too. Let’s keep our focus where it needs to be. 🙂
