Do you find it hard to focus? Or maybe just hard to focus on the positive on any given situation? I tend to air on the side of focusing way too much on the negative aspects of my days. If there is something negative to be taken away from any given situation I can definitely tell you what it is. Knowing that I am this way should make it easier to shift my focus right? Well, not so much as it turns out. In my 30 something odd years I have only found one surefire way to change my focus. That’s God. In the beginning of the year I started a Bible study that focuses in on Bible memorization. The idea is you memorize five verses a week by reading them 5 times each twice a day. Let me tell you that on the weeks where I have really stuck to it and spent that time focusing in on God’s Word, the days have seemed lighter, the weight of the world didn’t weigh so heavily on my shoulders. I will confess that I haven’t done so well with it in the past couple weeks. I can tell the difference, so today I am trying a little harder to focus in on that Word, to let it shift my focus, change my perspective.
What are some things that help you change your focus?
