If you are hiking up a rough and rocky hill, you have to stay focused on what’s ahead of you. If you are climbing over rocks and dangerous terrain and are looking behind or focusing on other distractions, you will more than likely stumble and fall to the bottom. If you take a tumble down hill, you usually will end up with wounds and have to start your climb all over again.

I have lost my focus in a major way. The last few years has been a struggle for so many people. Somehow I managed to allow the distractions of the world around me to make me lose my footing and have bounced around rock to rock until I hit the bottom of my hill.
Yesterday I woke up and I heard very loudly REFOCUS! One thing I know is if I am walking through something so are others. I called a friend last night and said “Why am I so angry all of the time?” She said “you are restless and not content with where you are!” She is right, I am not content with where I am. I have lost my focus and allowed hurt, rejection, disappointments… to rob me of what brings me peace, joy and contentment. One of those very things is blogging. There are a few other things that are part of my purpose in life that I stopped doing. Somehow I connected my passions to my pain. The things I was doing that brought me such joy was what I was doing when the most painful walk I have ever walked through took place.
I prayed last night and asked God why am I so angry all of the time. This morning I woke up to this photo below. I took this from a Facebook page and y’all should follow them. Link is included.
Why should I allow my life to continually be damaged and lose focus over others choices to not obey God and His word! I have been so angry and even when I thought I was past it, major life disappointments and stress would trigger that anger again. The pain and anger is where my focus has been. Anytime I have gotten my eyes off of Him and my purpose, He has always gently picked me up and sent me back up my hill!
Isaiah 43:18-1918 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Isaiah 26:3English Standard Version
3 You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Hebrews 3:1 “Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.”
Will you join me in refocusing your life?
