How do you stay focused on God? What do you do to remember to spend time with God each day? My journey with God began by myself in a travel trailer in southern Texas when I first asked Jesus into my heart. But what I remember when I think about where God has brought me from usually goes back to living in Las Vegas NV, when I lived the farthest away from God I have ever been.
It is times like these when we look back and remember the life of sin we lived in before knowing God that brings us strength and gratitude. For me it was this time of my life when my three year old daughter had an imaginary friend named Jesus show up, who reminded me of the commitment I had made years prior all alone in that travel trailer in Texas.
When we choose to set time aside each day to spend with our Father God, we should remember where we have come from. We must take time to thank God for what He has done in our lives and what He still wants to do. It is through remembering that allows us the ability to accept whatever task God places in front of us, knowing that if He brought us through before, He will do it again.
It is with this confidence that we focus each day on God and remember. As we focus on God and remember as He commands us to, we are encouraged and uplifted. We are reminded that we are God's children, and He wants the best for us. We are reminded that Jesus is with us every step of the way to give us God's peace, protection, provision and guidance as we live out our lives.
With this focus, we are able to set aside the things that don't really matter. The things that cause us anxiety or depression can be gone as we are reminded that God is in control and we don't have to be. Focusing brings us hope and joy as we remember that we are only here for a time and that this earth is not our home! We are reminded how much God loves us and wants us to be His hands and feet to others until He brings us home!
So where are you when it comes to focusing daily on God in your life? Wherever you are, God wants you to know He loves you and there is always more for you if you only set aside time with Him for Him to show you. As you choose to focus on God, He will bless you and renew you in ways that are only possible through Him! Focusing on Him will bring you closer to Him and closer to the person He created you to be!
Be encouraged as you focus on God today!
