"Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you." Proverbs 4:25
"What you focus on grows, what you think about expands, and what you dwell upon determines your destiny." Robin S. Sharma
Wow! What a powerful statement. Have you ever thought about that? What we focus on and spend time on will grow. Often times our focus can get completely off track and we give all of our time and energy to things that will eventually ruin our lives. What about in relationships?! If we focus on the negative things, then that is what is going stick out. If we focus on all the positive things, then THAT is what will grow. If you invest yourself into your marriage, it will flourish. If you invest yourself into your kids, your relationship with them will get better. If you pour yourself into your business, it then expands. If you seek God with all your heart, and spend time with Him, your life will be forever changed. But if we are doing all the opposite and consuming our lives with time stealers, then whatever that may be, will determine your destiny. Whenever it is put in that perspective, it makes me think about my life and what my energy is focused on. Are you focusing on the good things that God has blessed you with or are you focusing on the bad? Are you letting little things steal your time?
Take time the rest of this week to think of ways you can improve your thinking. Let's change our focus. Challenging myself and you to start focusing on all the good in your life and all the positives in your spouse, friends, kids, work, ..etc. God has so many big things in store for you and it is time to get our focus right!
Dear Heavenly Father, I am so sorry for letting myself get out of focus. I often focus on the negative instead of all the positives in my life. Please forgive me and change my heart. Let me see all that you are doing good in me and my life. Thank you for all the wonderful things you have given me and continue to bless me with. I love you so much. In your son's name, Amen.
