Focus. I want to zoom in on life, finding that one thing to concentrate upon, admire, astonish over. Where the edges all around that one thing are blurred, important, yes, to the picture's composition, but washing into the background, letting that one thing display its glory.
And God should be that one thing and He is. But I'm asking Him for another. Something, one thing, I can focus on here on earth. The overriding purpose in my life. Fulfilling His plans for me. Instead of trying to keep everything in focus.
I think of Jesus and His desire to save us. And Paul's heart for the Gentiles. And the missionaries who are called to a specific country, a specific peoples.
Five minutes may not be long, but it does force you to focus!
Do you have one focus (apart from God) or do you feel fragmented like I do, passionate about many things?
