How to focus through the haze

09/14/2012 - Author: Jennifer - 10 Comments

Five minutes—that is all. Write without abandon from one word that you are given on Friday. Five Minute Friday. Here we go!
The word is FOCUS

How can I focus when all I feel is pain? When I am judging because I have been hurt?
It is so hard to focus when my vision is clouded. How can I have better vision?
I need to love them like Jesus! Open His Word and search. We all have issues and it is NOT fair to focus on the bad and judge others. It is sin. Plain and simple. Matt. 7:1
Everyone needs love and I need to look through the haze of hurt, disappointment, etc. and focus on the good. I am not saying healing shouldn’t take place, but focus on the good.
Pray. Pray for me and them. Haze can be lifted and beams of sunshine can come through if I focus on The Son. He wants to help and He wants me to focus on ME (ouch).

Be blessed:)

  1. I know that my head gets fuzzy whenever I'm in pain. You're right–we should focus more on the good. Kinda like running a race or marathon. Focus on the finish line, rather than the achy muscles and you'll make it to the end.

  2. Hey Jennifer! I love how you've taken the word and reminded me that I need to remove the own plank from my eye. OUCH indeed! 😉 Blessings to you #fmfparty sister! :)Mindy @ New Equus – A New Creation
