Focus on the Important Things


I have found myself reflecting on what is important in life.

I look around and see so many unhappy faces of men and women and children, and I ask myself why? Why are these people so unhappy?

Then I look and see some people whose lives look like they are so hard and these people are smiling and happy. And once again, I ask, why?

What makes the difference between the first group who are unhappy and the one which was?

You see, the first group had no hope and was focusing on the wrong things, while the other one was focusing on the important things.

What are the important things?

Some important things are doing  God’s will, spending time with family, and sharing His word with others.

When we focus on the important things we wouldn’t be bogged down with who said what, or who did what, or what people think about us.

We wouldn’t be focused on the negatives of life, but on all of the wonderful blessings that we have.

Isn’t it amazing what happens when we count our blessings?

So today, let us spend time focusing on the important things in life. Let us focus on the positives,  for it is only then that we can truly receive  the peace and joy that God desires us to have.

Blessings From God

A while back we went to visit a local farmer. We didn’t have a lot of money left as it was nearing the end of the budget, but I really wanted to buy some fresh produce. We went to the first farmer and ended up spending a while talking to him about farming and looking at his crops and irrigation system.

At the end he sold us some herbs at a reduced price and gave us a number to someone who was selling watermelon.

We went to the wrong place searching for this farmer with watermelon and ended up meeting another farmer. He took us to his farm and gave me a huge set of herbs.

At the end, we ended up with so much fresh produce, new knowledge about farming and new contacts.

Amazing how God constantly reminds us of His love to us each day by sending us these blessings. Some blessings seems so small. Some are miraculous. But, all are tokens of the agape, never-ending, completely selfless love of God towards us sinners.

Oh thank You Lord for your uneding love for a sinner such as I!

Ephesians 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
