What's Your Focus?

Colossians 3:1-4 (NIV)

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your[a] life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

*If we align our thoughts with God, and ask Him to help us focus on His will for our lives, then everything that concerns us will work out with His guidance and our faith in action, and everything we desire will fall into place. When we realize we belong to Him and make Him the head of our lives, then all issues seem less of a burden and clarity appears because the problem no longer takes over our mind or outweighs other elements of our lives...We now free ourselves of worry and embrace the freedom of things God has delivered us from and blessed us with in spite of everything. God becomes the heavy weight, and makes the weight of this world light. After all, His yoke is easy and His burden is light (Matt. 11:30) because there is nothing too hard for Him, and He takes on our cares. So, as you begin your week, focus on the positive and watch the negative disappear. There is no room for faith and failure within God's plan for you and His purpose for your life.
