Focus

cb devo feb 5“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2(NIV)

 The past couple of years, God has laid a verse on my heart that will be my prayer throughout the year. The cool thing is I will wind up with a t-shirt that will have the verse on it. This year the t-shirt and verse found me by way of my husband cleaning out things at work. We have no clue where the t-shirt came from, and not only was the verse perfect it was in my favorite color. I love it when God goes above and beyond in the details.

 Basically the main word you see on the shirt says it all, Focus. Focus on the things of Christ not the things of this world. If we focus only on the things of this world, we lose sight of God’s blessings. The world can get us caught up in materialism, depression from the things going wrong around us, and leaning on our own strength rather than God. We have to remember as Christians, we are merely passing through this world on the way to our heavenly home. Therefore, we need to focus on the eternal, not the temporary.  

 “Heavenly Father, How thankful we are that we have an eternal focus and not just the temporary things that pass away. Help adjust our focus when we lose sight of You and Your will.”

 For His Glory
