My Primary Focus
I could fib and say that I just managed to find time today, the 7th to blog but I shall not. Don't have to. I actually have somehow made it some kind of 'law' that I will not blog in a new year until the 7th day. Don't ask. It's just my thing. So, all glory and praise to God! We made it into 2014! I tell you, that alone is a huge milestone and I thank God from the bottom of my heart. Happy New Year People! May 2014 be fulfilling and may you live it in health, wealth and peace of mind in Jesus Christ's name. Amen!
So how far with all your new year's resolutions? Does this 7th day find you still going strong? Or are you beginning to crack? I don't really do resolutions like I have shared here before but this year, I did take out some good time to sit with God and review my 'why'. Why am I here? Why am I Salt? Why do I blog? Why do I have this platform and a whole bunch of other soul searching questions about my relationships especially with my mgm and children who are growing at the speed of light. It was very, very free-ing to just sit with God and banter back and forth about how my 2014 was going to be. Truthfully, the discussion is not over.....But one thing is certain. This year I have one primary focus and it is God's Kingdom. What do I mean?
Towards the end of 2013, I shared that I believe that if we make any resolution this year, it should be to get closer to God. During my talk with PapaGod, he took it a step further. It's not just about getting closer to Him. It's about making him and what matters to him my number one priority. My primary focus. You see, that's what Matthew 6:33 is really asking us to do when it says we should 'seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness'. If we do this one thing, then God will help us keep all those other resolutions and give us all those other things we need. I am paying a lot of attention to the words of Jesus Christ himself this year. After-all, it is him that I claim to be following so why not take out time to really study all that He said to me. I know that if I apply them, this year will be my best year ever. In all the areas the truly matter to me.
I asked God what making him my primary focus would look like and he has started showing me what that means for me and I know that if you go to him, he will show you too. For each one of us, I am betting it will be different with one common thread running through: Be Love For I Am Love.
