Consider these thoughts...
If I focus on my abilities, I will always feel overwhelmed and inadequate…if I focus on WHO God is and WHAT He has done, I will feel confident and secure.
If I focus on what others say about me, I will feel either pride or pain…if I focus on what God says about me, I will feel appreciative and thankful.If I focus on what the world says about money, I will most likely be broke…if I focus on what God says about money, I will be blessed!If I focus on what the world says about problems, I will be in a constant state of worry and stress…if I focus on what God says about problems, I will see they are nothing more than opportunities to know and see Him for how great He is.
These are just a few of the 10 points that he makes, so please click on over to his blog post to read the rest.(Where Is Our Focus? (10 Gut Check Ideas!) by Perry Noble)
"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." - Matthew 6:33
When we place God first, and focus on him (and not our problems, other people, the world's opinions, etc.)...then we have absolutely nothing to worry about. He will always take care of everything we need.
So, I encourage you (and myself!) today to evaluate where our focus is. And if our focus is on the wrong things, then let's do something to change that!
