Focus has been my word for quite sometime not just for the task at hand but also in life issues as they arise. If you think about it we are always focused on something, good or bad our attention goes somewhere. I’m learning as situations come up if I stay focused on Jesus, and keep my eyes on him instead of the problems going on around me, my thought life is better and my emotions are more stable. Which makes for a happier life, cus let’s be real if Moma ain’t happy nobody’s happy. As the saying goes, “Happy wife, happy life”😂
Believe me I’m not saying that this is easy because sometimes it’s darn right hard and feels impossible at times. But we always have a choice. When I choose wrong that’s when I begin to get sidetracked, I focus on my problems, I think about it, talk about it, think about it, talk about it, and that’s when every goes haywire for me. The committee in my mind convenes and then I’m in BIG trouble. Maybe you can relate to that?
The Word says the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy but I’ve also learned that if the enemy knows you have enough of God and His word in you he knows he cannot destroy you so he has to move onto Plan B…..Distractions. He will work so hard set up distractions to keep you derailed from walking in your destiny and that’s exactly what he wants. He doesn’t have to destroy you just distract you.
The enemy knows YOU are a danger to him and that you walking in your destiny will destroy him and benefit the Kingdom and that’s the last thing he wants. He doesn’t want you or I to fulfill the call on our lives.
Do you recognize the distraction in your life?
Do you recognize the things that crop up to steal your peace, joy, past victories, freedom, etc?
We’ve gotta learn to stay focused on Jesus, speak life, speak His promises over ourselves, over our families, marriages, problems, etc. That negative talk will get you NOWHERE but further in the pit!!
YOU ARE NOT A PIT DWELLER!
No matter how bad things are in your life, no matter how deep you’ve fallen into the pit of hell let me assure you God is right there with you! He IS in control and He will never loosen his grip on you.
So stretch your hands toward Heaven and He will lift you out of the pit, out of the hopelessness you feel, and set your feet upon a rock giving you a firm place to stand and direct your steps my friend.
You are a Trophy of Grace precious one so stand firm and focused, don’t give into the distractions and never give up. Every one of His promises is for YOU and YOU are destined for greatness!! He loves you with an everlasting love and He’s got great plans for you!!
Blessings and hugs,
