Distractions, distractions, distractions. Constantly doing the most to grab your attention and keep it. There are so many social outlets filled with entertainment and information, activities to keep you busy and going and not have time for yourself, or your mind being a playground for unnecessary thoughts.
One moment you are off to doing something and within minutes you start doing something else that leads to a trail of unfinished projects. The gag is that being focused and staying focused has very little to do with completing check lists, and more to do with choosing that what you are called to do and be as a priority.
That's it! What are you making priority in your life? I have literally within these couple of weeks changed my priorities and have noticed the benefits of my decisions and the cost of the them. The cost was my rest. I was so focused on shifting and making things happen, that I was doing things in my own strength. Which in return, distracted me from other priorities. We make things difficult for ourselves when it's as simple as believing and walking in what we choose to believe.
Proverbs 16:3 AMP
Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].
This is the scripture that stood out to me when I slowed down and allowed myself to do nothing. I was reminded of the one step I was missing to get the results I desired. Writing down plans and even praying for God to take over my plans was not enough. I have to choose to give it to Him. Allow Him to make the necessary changes. You can't have focus, discipline or success without taking action. Action of starting and then allowing the one who knows the plans for you to shift you into the right direction.
Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP
Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
My friend, this is good news! Not only will you be able to avoid being stressed and overwhelmed, you can find comfort in knowing that He is with you and He will lead you.
Psalms 48:14 AMP
For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even until death.
Be encouraged today and rest in the assurance that you are not alone and you can take comfort in the comforter Himself. He will guide you in the way of success, peace, healing, joy, whatever you need.
You are ROYALTY! You have the power to FOCUS and CHOOSE it.
It has already chosen YOU...
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
- Allow yourself to have quiet time and think on the plans you have set.
- Meditate on Proverbs 16:3, Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalm 48:14
- Write down anything you hear or what may stand out to you during your quiet time.
- Focus on the direction you receive, pray about it and then do it.
