Year 4-Day 64: Today, I am grateful for the ability to adjust my focus!
Vision continues to be my one little word to consider with focus this year. This image brought me right back to that decision. Focus is what clouds or clears our vision.
Where do I place my focus?
Our power of choice, to act outside of what human nature would dictate, is what make humans God's masterpiece. We are His amazing act of courage... and love... when he breathed into us His breathe and allowed us to choose or reject Him. We get to choose our focus.
This reality...combined with the constant reminder to love Him and love each as "the main thing"... seems to give me "something to work on for a lifetime.
Focus on the good.
1 Timothy 4:4-5 states: "
looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."
We can...in Him...take this day.
Looking to Jesus...who endured the cross...in our place. Powerful.
We can imagine the faces on the "cloud of witnesses" who have run the race before us. Moses...Daniel and "the boys"... Esther... Ruth... Joseph... David... Peter... Paul... Mary... Martha... Lazarus... and so many more. Focus and be encouraged.
When Crabby Gabby crosses our path...focus.
When Needy Nelly needs a little more...focus.
When Whiney Willie invites us to jump on the complain train...focus.
When the clock seems to tick too slow...focus.
Oh boy...that thought woke up my Earworm and he is singing "Be Thou My Vision". It moves my soul like few other hymns. I will let Glad help him at their A capella best!
Today, I am grateful for the ability to adjust my focus!
