i just want you to take a moment, and stop. stop letting the worries and fears run over and over in your mind. just for one second, don’t think about about the things you can’t control and think about the One who can control them. i’ve learned a lot about focus the past few years. i’ve spent a lot of time focusing on the wrong things. i was so focused on the problems, and not the One who can solve my problems. take a deep breath and know that you are cared for by the King of Kings. those things that have been weighing you down, don’t have to have control of your life. you know what’s at the end of those thoughts? nothing. emptiness. you will feel completely drained and yet will have accomplished nothing. so instead of focusing on the struggle, focus on God. focus on who He is, and who He is making you to be. the painful moments are still purposeful moments. i don’t know what your dealing with right now, but i know you don’t have to deal with it on your own. my friend, i want you to refocus tonight. don’t focus on the problems, but the One who can solve your problems. even if He doesn’t take away your pain, He will bring you abundant peace and joy through the pain. i promise you that even in the darkest storms, there is still joy because of Jesus. so friends as you go about the rest of tonight and tomorrow, i pray your mind and heart are focused on Jesus.
