Focusing on today

I was reminded recently of how important it is to keep my eyes on the cross. I must not compare myself to others. Doing so will only serve to inflate my ego and fool myself into thinking I am better. Even worse, it could cause me to become sad and defeated because I fail to measure up.

My focus must be on living in the day that God has given me and not worry about the future or the mistakes of the past. It does no good to dwell on my failures. That would only serve to fuel negativity. I can not serve God while feeling sorry for my mistakes. I must focus on the cross and the gift of life and grace that He has given me. I must focus on the life and health that I have today. Life lasts for a season and it is up to me how I will live it. I must take control of my emotions and focus my mind in those things that are worthy of building my life on. Those things include my love for God, family, church and friends. Everything else is secondary to those things.

Life is those things that happen to us. We will always experience negative things that happen to us and around us. I chose to find the lessons that need to be learned from life and to grow stronger because of them. I chose to not let the negative garbage in life tear me down and destroy my inner peace. My faith in the work on the cross of Calvary gives me an anchor to hold onto in the midst of life’s storms.

    I need to moderate the comments a little more often. I never think to do it. Apparently I do have some readers and I need to quit being so slack. LOL Thanks for reading and commenting.
