How easy it is to lose our focus - when we're taking a photograph and it's out of focus it's obvious immediately but in life when we take our focus off Jesus it takes a while sometimes for us to realise.
I have to admit with my current situation I'm frequently taking my eyes off my Saviour and focusing on my circumstances - with a new baby who breastfeeds quite regularly, and a house that needs a serious declutter plus children with character issues and homeschooling challenges its too easy to forget the eternal and look at the temporary.
16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4
I'm praying that that will be my verse to focus on in the coming weeks and will help me keep my focus in the right place!
