Focus!

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

 

The chart projected on the wall was a few feet straight ahead from where I sat. The doctor blocked one of my eyes and told me to read the chart, and only stop when I could no longer read what it said. When I finished with that eye, we proceeded to do the same with the other eye. Then, he took away the eye blocker, and I could read with both eyes, a little farther down the chart from where I had previously stopped. Though I could see fairly well with each individual eye, it was a lot easier to do it with both. I could focus better.

 

My visits to the optometrist, or even to the ophthalmologist are only an example of how sometimes two are just better than one, especially when it pertains to focusing. Here are some other examples about the power of twosomes: In order to waltz, one would need a partner; in order to lift weights, one would need a spotter; in order to throw a Frisbee, a football, or a baseball, one would need a catcher; in order to hike a trail, one should always have a partner to ensure his or her safety; in order to get married, one would definitely need a mate. And the list goes on and on.

 

Though there is multiplicity to the meaning of the word “focus,” when I think about it, I automatically think of two things coming together, like the lenses that optimize the clarity in the way our eyes see, especially as we get older and our vision is no longer so clear. God’s Word is our guide for life. It helps us to stay focused on Him as we travel the path set before us.

 

Is the path you are on rocky and unsteady? Are your troubles many? Are people failing you? Focus on the One who can bring you the relief and victory that you need: Jesus.

 

“Sweet Lord Jesus: we are so thankful for You. If we keep our eyes on You, the troubles of this earth will be dimmed by Your light.”

 

For His Glory
