Focus. Or my lack thereof.
If there is one single characteristic that seems to have eluded me throughout my not-quite-forty-years it is this. Or is it the opposite…
I get so focused on being a good mom that I neglect the needs of my marriage.
I get so focused on a work goal that my home falls apart.
I get so focused on the future that I miss the joy of today.
I get so focused on the things I want that I forget the One who gives me everything.
It is the plethora of…everything…in my life that makes it hard to focus. Faith, family, career. But also? Laundry, finances, friendships, hobbies, books, ideas, conferences, writing, instant messages, challenges, goals.
There are a million things I could do today and none of them well. Or I can choose to seek Him first this morning and see where He would have me focus.
What is your focus today?
