This morning I have so much to focus on I feel that my eyes are jittering back and forth! With a three day weekend under my belt, there’s much to do at work. All but one agent is down with sickness, so that makes it even more imperative that I focus on the tasks at hand – no matter how many there are.
It reminds me that we often feel overwhelmed when there is much to do. We can’t focus on on everything forever. But we can remember to focus on first things first. No matter if it’s at the office or at the kitchen sink we have much to do and precious time to do it all.
Focus first on God – Each and every morning, before we face our hectic days. This is our relationship. Just as husband and wife must take time to visit with one another, we too must take time to visit with our Lord. Without this relationship, other things will falter.
Focus on what God has said in His Word – You might not have time for a whole loaf, but a nice thick slice of the Word for your day, spoken aloud over all your life and tucked away in your heart for the day ahead will change the outlook and remind you to focus all day.
Focus on your position – You might be low boy on the totum pole at work but your position IN CHRIST is top notch. You’ve been given great authority and blessings to help you through the day. Rehearse your place at God’s table, in God’s heart and with God’s blessings and never forget that you are chosen and royalty in His eyes.
Oh beloved, as you focus on this day don’t forget to thank the Lord for every hours, minute and second – it’s all a gift to you from Him. A day with Christ is so very valuable that He will give you songs when the phones are wringing, soft answers when the wrath comes and blessed sleep as the day ends. You are loved and you are cared for all the days of your life!
Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
