Five Minute Friday: Focus

So...I've done Five Minute Friday before.  A bunch.  But my blog used to be named "A Drop in the Bucket" and I've done it at my other blog home, Intend to Live, which I co-write with a fellow Five Minute Friday'er. 

But now I'm back here.  With a new blog name, and I just wanted to make sure I didn't confuse anyone. 

If you've never heard of me {and all of that above doesn't make a difference to you}?  Fabulous.  Welcome. 

& Go:
from Battlefield of the Mind devotional by Joyce Meyer on YouVersion app, Day 8

I've spent a lot of time this week focusing on this passage.  I find myself drifting away from God when I forget that it's not my will, but His. 

And honestly, when I find myself focusing on His power, and His will I find myself in a more positive mood. 

It's almost scary sometimes. How easily my mind shifts.

But I guess that is a part of growing in my relationship with Him.

Finally realizing and knowing that things aren't in your control, affords you the time {and brain power} to think about all of the awesome things that are happening in the world around you. 

And it is giving me time to think about what I want to do with my time.  It has helped issues come to the forefront of my mind and helped me possibly find a cause (for lack of a better word) that I really want to focus on.

But I guess that's all part of His plan, isn't it?  

STOP

Now it's time to head over to The Gypsy Mama to find find out what everyone else is thinking and writing about the word "Focus".  Click on over to find out more about it {that is, if that isn't where you came from. hehe.}

One of the most always humbling things to remind myself of is Jesus praying alone in the garden on the night of his betrayal that "this cup would pass from me" but "not my will but Yours be done", especially when I consider that I've never been so excruciatingly anxious about something that I was sweating blood. When I think of my Savior choosing to be fully surrendered to the Father's will, not His own, to go to the cross for me, how can I do anything less than surrender my life to His will, too? Oh Lord, enable me to truly trust that You are brilliant and know best and will give me all I need if I follow You in reckless abandon.
