The Power Of Focus...
There Are Millions Of Reasons To Say No. Instead, Try To Focus On One Good Reason To Say Yes…
Jesus said, “No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God’s kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day.” Luke 9:62
We live in a world of countless opportunities. However endless the possibilities are they become worthless unless certain particular options are followed and acted upon. The challenge we face is not a lack of material, or ideas, or people, or information or opportunity. We live in a world that is full of God given abundance. Our challenge is to fashion meaning and value out of it all, and that demands focus.
Focus is what draws everything together, gives it a framework, and gives you something productive to do with it all. Without it, you’ll be pulled in many different directions at once, and will never get anywhere. Focus is the ability to successfully use the blessings that are all around you, to accomplish your Heaven sent dreams. The need for focus is becoming more and more important. There is simply too much to deal with. If you are not focused, your time gets eaten away by all the thousands of details that make up life. If you are not extremely focused, you’re probably not getting much accomplished.
Each new week, yes, even this morning is an opportunity to achieve just a little bit, to get a little bit more accomplished. Little things, done again and again, have massive power. Picking up the phone and calling prospects, practicing a musical instrument, praying for 10min each morning. Success comes from the consistent application of effort…. That means doing something every day, every hour, or even every minute, over and over again until your goal is realized.
Father in heaven, forgive me for a lack of focus sometimes, a lack of focus and direction is my real problem, not lack of time. Help me to focus all of my moments in the same direction. I know that then You can step in and empower my effort. I believe today that Focus + Faith makes things possible. In Jesus Name. Amen.
