As I began remarking how summer is almost coming to an end, I felt the Lord sweetly remind me to reign my focus in. Isn’t it funny how often we are looking ahead, sometimes so much so that we miss out on the current moment and what God is doing now? I feel like God has been teaching me on a deeper level to set focus on His face—and remain there. What does that mean? Intentionally setting my thoughts, engaging in conversation with Him, laying aside distractions, focusing on Him and His presence, asking for a greater awareness of His presence. This is what I’ve been learning—as I do, there’s a new found confidence growing in what God has in store and what He is doing, because His love becomes the consuming factor. And when His love overtakes and becomes our focus, there’s a deeper level of trust that takes root. And above all, we grow deeper in our relationship with Him, which is the place this trust comes from.
Guys, God is so good! I love how He teaches us a leads our hearts, don’t you? He is always for us. As you set focus on His face, may you be overcome on a greater level by the depth of His love for you. 🧡
