What is your focus? 🤔

in #christian-trail4 years ago (edited)


Colossians 3:2 (KJV) says, Set your affections on things above, and not on things of the earth 🌏. Where have your affections been today, did you realize God wanted you to be mindful of Him all day, were you?
This is not meant to be an interrogation, but a realization, a friendly prompting to not just you, but to me also.
I'd like for you to go on a journey with me if you will, my journey from all about doing it my way, to truly wanting to do it God's way. I have really tried very hard to be a great Christian. My desires have always been to please God, well since I've become an on fire 🔥 Christian about 18 years ago. The journey has been a gamut of emotions and highs and lows, but a long the way I have learned a lot. The one thing I've realized the most is this, my best asset as a child of God is my resting in Him, not working to make it happen. Because, I seriously have worn myself out. All the while Jesus has said, in His writings, only do what I see the Father do. So, if it's already done what am I trying to prove. All I'm supposed to do is lean (trust) on Him, and acknowledge Him in all my ways, and He will direct my path, see Proverbs 3:5-6, which He always does.
So, guess what, I'm going to rest in the fact that it's already done. I'm going to keep my eyes 👀 on things that are above, by God's grace of course, speak life (the Word), give Him the honor and praise due Him, and watch Him work, and I believe that's miracle working material right there, so I'll keep you posted where the adventure takes me, if you'll come along for the ride with me. 🙌🏻🙏🏻❤️
