Finding Focus

Through The Looking Glass2

Alexander Graham Bell recognized the value of being able to focus on a task…

“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand.
The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”

However, he also observed that it was not just about focusing on “a” thing, but on the “right” thing…

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

Someone once said that “when God closes a door, He opens a window”. Sometimes, the door of opportunity closes, and when it does, instead of bemoaning what we perceive to have lost, we should be looking for the new opportunity that God is opening before us.

As we enter into the promise of a new year, this is the perfect time to regain our perspective for the tasks ahead. Success in anything requires perseverance and focus. Make sure your focus is on the prize God intended for you, and not an attractive distraction.

Happy New Year!

The Way of an Eagle

KS77759From references in Scripture to it’s place as our national symbol, it is obvious that the eagle is very highly regarded.

Why is that?

Consider a few facts about eagles:

  • When eagles mate, they mate for life.
  • Eagles are very protective of their families.
  • When eagles grow old, they return to the rock of their birth.
  • After an eagle’s 60th year, it appears young once again.

Do you think you’ve missed your call in life? Are you worn out, and think you’ve outlived your usefulness? Is “purpose” a word that you believe is a thing of the past?

Maybe you’ve decided it’s time to throw in the towel. Before you do, can I ask you to do two things for me?

#1: Consider this verse…

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ~ Isaiah 40:31

#2: Watch this video…

My prayer is that after watching this, you will find your strength renewed like the eagle, and understand that with God, faithfulness, perseverance, and persistence are qualities that far outweigh the superficial qualities (money, fame, looks, etc) that the world tells us gives an individual worth.

Keep on soaring!
