I'm joining in on Lisa-Jo Baker's weekly challenge to spend just 5 minutes with no if's, and's, or but's on a given topic. No corrections. No track backs. Just writing in the raw.
This week's topic is "Focus"
Set my timer....ok
When I sit at my computer/lap top, I can't seem to focus on anything else after a while. the stories of women, all ages, all places in life, all physical places around the world - capture me! Suddenly the space I'm in seems really insignificant and small.
I know it's not just that - I believe God's given me a reason and a season to live it in. I am just in transition right now. and just like my eyesight that seems to lose the ability to go from up close to far away very easily very quickly, it takes me time to adjust my heart. my attitude. my mindset. MY FOCUS.
Right now I don't have a focus. Well, just selfish ones. Like walking Abbey. Preparing dinner and staying off my phone/internet/email when Mark comes through the door. I need my Godly perspective back. I need His vision to gain His focus, but I can't seem to get past the fact that my entire suitcase/life is packed inthe back of that UHaul sitting out by thte volleyball court. ugh.
Soon it will be in place. The house will be closed, the walls slowly painted, and His purpose revealed. Until then I gotta keep keepin' on . I don't know what it is...what it will be...but my heart keeps wanting to focus on Missionary Care (especially in light of the stuff going on in tthe world right now, and loving so many ppl that are caught in it...) and not having a place to put that energy, that love. So I pray
I could go on and on...but i'm not - i'm going to jump out the door in the rain, walk my dog, and take her for a ride....expand my horizon a little bit and keep praying for those friends in difficult places in the world today...
Just another Jesus-girl on a journey...mostly around my home, but wherever else He drags me to. I love Jesus. Do my best at life. Write about what I learn. Always making messes on the table and in relationships. I take pictures of things others don't notice, craft and hand quilt, bake and cook and mostly I pray. Affiliate Links may be used.

Five Minute Friday
Here from Five Minute Friday. I'm in a transition period, too, and know exactly what you mean. Waiting is hard. I'm ready to get on with it. But God has said "Not yet." So I wait.ReplyDelete
I will pray that you keep seeking that Godly Perspective... I feel that it ebbs and flows every season. Keep a world view and stay connected to that "big picture" as I like to call it :)ReplyDelete
