Over the years my focus as a Christian hasn’t always been on Jesus. It has been on many other irrelevant things, like football, work and other activities.
When I focus on other things I am drawn away from Jesus, it is very subtle but still it is drawn away.
I realise that my peace has disappeared.
I realise that my faith is weaker.
I realise that I am less tolerant.
I realise that I hold more grudges.
I realise that my love is growing cold.
At these times I need to sit down and refocus on Jesus. I need to spend time in the word as well as in prayer.
It is hard to focus on Jesus when I am focusing on something else.
I need to persevere.
I hate that word as it sounds painful.
Today I choose to fully focus on Jesus.
What are you focusing on today?
