I have vision problems. I have to wear glasses to help me keep my focus on what I need to see. If I take my glasses off, everything gets blurry. And thatís not good Ė especially when Iím driving! Being able to focus your vision is important, especially when it comes to your life. Check it out:
Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. Romans 8:7
You know, itís so easy to focus on yourself and whatís going wrong in your life. Itís easy to pick out what is going wrong at school, work, in your family and in your friendships. Itís easy to dwell on what you havenít gotten or what youíre waiting for that seems like youíre never going to get. And thereís nothing wrong with communicating those feelings to God. But God doesnít want you to stay focused on that. He wants you focused on Him and what Heís doing in your life because when you stay focused on yourself and whatís not going right in your life, He knows that those thoughts will steal your joy. So, fix your vision problem. You can only have 20/20 vision when you focus on God and the positive things Heís doing in your life.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
