Staying FocusedSept. 16, 2019 - Anonymous
Busy, busy, busy! For me, life is a little bit extra crazy right now. We have three kids at home full time—two boys in school and playing football, and a daughter in preschool and gymnastics—and my oldest son comes for visits on his school breaks. Not only that, but my husband travels every week for work and is only home on the weekends! We take our kids to and from school. We take them to their extracurricular activities. We work, attend Parent-Teacher Organization meetings, serve in ministry, and try to spend any extra time we have with our family. When did life become so busy? Needless to say, during the week, life can feel super overwhelming. Some days, I start to get grumpy. I can become short and impatient with the kids. My flesh begins to take over, and I am no longer in communication with the Lord. I am no longer walking in the spirit. That is why everything around me seems so overwhelming. “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, you shall not fulfill the fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). I love Scripture so much because the Lord uses them to speak to us and teach us simple lessons every day. One of my favorite portions of Scripture is in Matthew, when Jesus walked on the water and “[Peter] said, ‘Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.’ So He said, ‘Come.’ And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, ‘Lord, save me!’ And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?’ And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased” (Matthew 14:28-32). There are so many important lessons to be learned from this small portion of Scripture. Stay focused on the Lord. We never have to be afraid. The Lord will always be there to save us. Have faith. God is in control. Don’t let the busyness and craziness of life take your focus of of the Savior. When our focus is on Jesus, all the other things don’t seem to matter so much.Continue Reading
