Five Minute Friday ~ FOCUS

It's once again Five Minute Friday where a multitude of bloggers write for five minutes on one word. Today's word is FOCUS.

I love when a word, one word, brings a song to mind. When I read focus the voice in my head (yes, it's my own) immediately began singing, "Turn your eyes upon Jesus.....".

What am focused on? What are my eyes turned upon?

I think I need to examine on a regular basis' what I am focused on. For where my focus is that is where I'm spending my time and energy. If my focus isn't on Jesus than it's on myself. I don't want to be focused on me.

I want my eyes to be on Jesus. I want to focus my goals, dreams and desires on things that may glorify Him.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.
