FOCUS - A Reminder for Me from the Archives

I originally posted this on January 5th, but decided to re-post this as a reminder to myself and maybe to be helpful to others as well. 

I have chosen FOCUS as my word for 2013. I want and desperately need to learn how to focus on one thing at a time. As I learn to FOCUS this year, I desire for my eyes to always be FOCUSED on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2).

When it’s time to read, study, meditate, and memorize God’s Word then I want to FOCUS on God's Word.

When it’s time to pray  I want to FOCUS on prayer.

When it’s time to be with my husband  I want to FOCUS on him.

When it’s time to do household chores  I want to FOCUS on chores.

When it’s time to teach the children I want to FOCUS on teaching.

When it’s time to talk (or counsel) with an individual at church or at a coffee shop I want to FOCUS on the individual.

When it's time to exercise I want to FOCUS on good health.




When I try to multi-task, I start a lot of projects, but finish very few. I need to stop multi-tasking because quite frankly I suck at it. I honestly believe I will accomplish more and grow more if I will learn to FOCUS on Jesus at all times as He helps me FOCUS on one thing (or person) at a time.

I believe living a focused life will bring peace to my life as I trust in Christ and keep my thoughts focused on Him (Hebrews 12:2 and Isaiah 26:3).
