Leveraging Our Focus

"I will open up the way before you, as you take steps of trust along your path. (When) the way before you appears to be blocked (don't) focus on the obstacle or search for a way around it...instead, focus on Me...That is the secret of success in My kingdom. Although you remain aware of the visible world around you, your primary awareness is of Me." (305)
Right now I am in the midst of two surgical procedures on my feet. I am recovering from the first operation and will have the other foot operated on in a couple months. They are repairing an inherited weakness and misalignment that must be corrected to ensure my ability to continue to be active and healthy for years to come.
I have not been looking forward to the process of two back-to-back surgeries and the months of recovery! However, the benefits of having made the corrections will be so worth the hassle. As I focus on the benefits, I am motivated to move forward. It's all about where I place my focus!
When Jesus is the main focus, the obstacles that seem to litter life's journey can literally leverage our focus and lift our sights to a whole new awareness of Him!
I am certainly trying to leverage this home-bound time to be...
More focused on Him...dmc


  1. I had an emergency appendectomy a few years ago and even on my birthday ! First time I ever had surgery. I could have let that spoil my day but I chose not to. I thank God for choosing to save me and what a blessing it was to have so much "attention" on my special day! :)

    You inspire me Dawn Marie! Is there anything I can do for you? Cook supper, clean?

  2. Thanks, Melissa...I love the way you turned an unpleasant situation into an "special day" opportunity! YOU inspire me!
