Where is Your Focus?

Romans 8:5-6 (ESV)
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

*It's the beginning of the work week, and I'm sure some of you are thinking about your " to do" list, wondering why did the weekend have to end, or dreading the responsibilities to come. In going deeper, some of you may even feel caught in a cycle and wondering when will your change come? Perhaps you may even think you are on the right path, but yet you can't seem to receive whatever it is that you desire. In that instance, take the time to ask yourself, "What is my mind focused on?" Are you mainly focused on yourself or the things that concern God? Do you have issues with being truthful about your current situation and how your choices are impacting your life? Perhaps you may have envy, regret, disgruntle tendencies, or lack of Godly prioritizing in your heart that is serving as the very thing that is holding you back. Where is your focus today, and does it line up with what God wants you to focus on? The flesh finds many distractions, but the spirit is always looking for spiritual opportunities of improvement, growth, and the ability to find joy in any given situation. Revamp your focus in order to see things differently, and receive what you have been missing out on...
