Have you ever focused so much on a word that suddenly no matter how you spell it it doesn’t look right?
Have you focused intently on printing something perfectly and suddenly forgot how to write a certain letter properly?
I have done both of the above. It seems sometimes when we try our hardest to focus on something it is at that very moment we forget the very basic essentials. I imagine that many of us do that with our Christian walk. We get so focused on the do’s and don’ts of our faith that we forget the very essential part of all that we believe…..God.
I even struggle with this in ministry. It is very easy to get caught up in pleasing people and programming for the church and miss out on the fact that God has sent me to lead these people to His throne for His glory. Unfortunately sometimes the church becomes like a business and we are just trying to “grow” our business anyway we can.
As we walk this journey together let’s not allow ourselves to get too focused but rather allow God to move through us freely. In the end I think the wonderfulness will be more than we can comprehend.
