How can we focus more on Christ?
Many years ago, I thought that Sunday was the only day of the week to focus on Jesus. That’s the day designated to going to church. Then we could check Jesus off the list and go on about our lives, unless, of course, we needed Him for something.
But reading the Bible and these scriptures changed all of that for me.
1 Chronicles 16:11
11 Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
1 Corinthians 10:31
31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
I know I have shared these scriptures many times, but they make me think each time I read them. We must seek Him continuously and we must seek Him in everything.
It’s been a busy couple of days. My schedule is full, and I need more sleep. I was getting ready to leave the house for another round of iron infusions. I just learned my body was still fighting iron issues, an issue I thought had been resolved.
As I was grabbing all my stuff to head out the door, I dropped a folder with many loose papers that spilled onto the floor. This really isn’t a big deal because all I had to do was pick up the folder and papers. (They didn’t even get out of order when they fell. Thank you, Jesus!) But I truly believe God allowed those papers to fall to the floor as my breaking point to call out to Him.
I had been running around worrying about all I needed to do. Something I have learned over and over that I just need to give to Him. But what is it about us trying to do it on our own?
I guess the point today I am trying to make we have to remember to seek Him and go to Him for the small things like a fallen folder on the ground to the big scary things in life. And not only are we to seek Him in the bad things, but the good things too! Everything we do should be for be for the glory of God.
How exciting it is to have a Savior that helps us and controls everything! Join me in seeking Him today!
