When I close my eyes what do I see? Is it you that I meditate on constantly? Are my desires worthy of my calling from you? Are my emotions clouding my intention, my focus !! Am I focused on all that I don’t know more than being joyful for what I do know? Is my mind filled with comparisons and thoughts of perfection?
Is my mind filled with thoughts that are true? whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].Philippians 4:8
Can you fathom that the GOD of all the universe has called us ‘friend’ John 15:15 so are we a good friend? What makes a good friend for you>? I realized that I haven’t always been a great friend even in the actual sense I’ve since worked to improve this with focused and (aiming at self-less) attention.
Do we share moments together that I wish wouldn’t end, do I share things that happen in my day with you? What is it like when we meet am I distracted or do I give you my undivided attention? Do I care what you have to say? Will I lay myself down for the sake of you my friend? Or would I deny you for the sake of earth peace? I want to boldly stand up for you in spite of any challenge!!
For you are Christ (my Redeemer) , you are also Lord over my life and you are oh so Holy !!You came, You died, You rose, You reign and You will soon Return.
We all need somebody to lean on but is this leaning like the words of Bill Withers suggests that I only lean when I’m not strong? No, I want to lean even when I’m happy, even when I’m sad, even if I’m sick or well, in good and bad times…. I think you’d understand best!!
Focus Milly! Focus on Jesus
