Worry, deadlines, pressures, changes, trials, and false beliefs, can all take our focus away from the eternal things, Our joy and peace can be quickly stolen, not only by daily events or negative outlooks of our own, but also the outlook of others. This is much like when a player steals base in a baseball game. Last week, there was one day where my circumstances were noticeably out of my control, and it was only when I turned my eyes back to Jesus through God's presence, and a friend's encouragement, I was reminded not to become distracted by the situation. I may have struck out that day, but that won't be my last at bat, and just maybe next time I will keep my eyes on Jesus, as He leads me to victory, despite the distractions which surround me. What or who keeps you focused in this "game" called life?
