Do You Have Focus? Go Fish.

  1. Love the “Go fish” analogy. I’ll have to try that.

    Yeah, focus is something I want to work on this year, too. I admire, nay, envy people who are focused on a single pursuit in their life, every choice they make based on whatever that pursuit is. I don’t think The Bachelor, which is a show I get sucked into watching, is a pursuit worth focusing on. Ahem.

    Interesting, at a time when you’re feeling unfocused, you decided to throw away your contacts.

    1. Right? I was hoping the irony would be insightful. (Pun intended. Groan.) Maybe sometimes we stay in activities longer than we need to–like I thought my vision was good for a month but was only intended for 2 weeks! Meanwhile, God’s Spirit is ready to take us on new adventures! And your Bachelor comment…made me laugh out loud! ? Diane, you are such a gem. Be gentle to yourself!

  2. “If, like me, you struggle with focus or you’ve been asking God for something he’s not giving you – perhaps, perhaps, just doing the next right thing (and the next right thing, and the next right thing…) is part of his answer.”

    I needed to read these words today!

    I completely relate to the feeling of ‘Go Fish’ too.

  3. Thank you for this insight! Sometimes the answers are so clear but I struggle sometimes with unclear or no answers. Reading your post gives me the chance to set back and look at the answers. The times that things were unclear, were when I lost focus, which is often 🙂 Thank you again for sharing 🙂

    1. Polly, you and me both. And that’s great insight that maybe when the answers are not clear it’s because WE aren’t clear/focused. So grateful God helps us through the fog and sets us back on course! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  4. Pearl, you are talking about my life this week … focus. It’s one my two words for this year … focus and fly.

    Do the next thing … it’s what I learned from Elizabeth Elliott years ago … but I’ve forgotten. Thank you for the reminder … and the tea thing …. yep, I do that too. 🙂

    1. Hulda, I love your two words! Maybe I’ll have to borrow your other word too. 🙂 If we didn’t live half-way around the world from each other, I’d say let’s have tea! (Maybe we’d even remember to drink it.) 😉 Hugs!
