Five Minute Friday: Focus

20120913-231548.jpg

It’s Five Minute Friday again! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Focus.

Go.

My focus is rarely where it should be these days.

Prone to wander. Lord, I feel it. Prone to leave the One I love. That is so me. I have a restless heart, for sure.

I get caught up in circumstances, trivial pursuits and other people’s issues and tend to lose sight of what really matters. I call it multitasking and, if I’m honest, I take great pride in it. Where is the line, though, between multitasking and simply an inability to focus on one thing that really matters?

At the end of the day, I have checked off numerous items but what have I really accomplished. And what have I taught my children?

Do I want them to be busy and know they can multitask? Or to be still and know He is God?

One of my favorite pastors once said, when asked how he wrote so many sermons, “I just take every passage and run to the cross.” Jesus. That was his focus.

Whatever my day holds, be it trials or triumphs, I want my focus to be Jesus.

Not Jesus and…

Not Jesus, in addition to…

Just Jesus.

Stop
