Focused



Philippians 3:12-16 (The Message)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. 

So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you'll see it yet! Now that we're on the right track, let's stay on it.

 I say:  Let's keep our eyes on the prize!

Amen! Lord, clear our blurred vision so we can see YOU!

Your photo of the beautiful Humming Bird totally focused on it's goal is perfect for the verse. Today, I believe more than ever, we must stay focused on HIM. So many, many distractions out there to pull us away from giving our all to the Lord. Beautiful post, beautiful message. Why thank you very much for liking my header. Blessings.

Hi Glenda, I have spent the last half hour enjoying your blog. I so enjoyed your writings and your photography. I'm glad your family was out of harms way during the storm...your 4,000 mile journey would be a trip of life time for me!
