Out of Focus

Come, let us bow down in worship. Let us get down on our knees before the Lord Who made us. For He is our God. And we are the people of His field, and the sheep of His hand.

“How to get him to notice you!”

“Try our Ultimate makeover!”

“Test your fashion know-how!”

“Get the best workout to transform your body!”

The headlines of a typical magazine tend to forces on you, you, and you. But here is a little secret: it’s not all about you.

What’s not all about you? Life. Eternity. Everything. It’s not about you; it’s about the one who created you. It’s about knowing that the Lord is God, and you are not. It is about obeying the Master, since you are the servant. It is about trusting the Shepard, since he is the one who knows how to perfectly love, protect, guide, and care for his sheep.

Talk about a different way of looking at rings. We are so used to focusing on ourselves 24-7. Don’t you think that it is time for a change? Ask God to give you a perspective makeover. Ask him to transform your mind so that you spend the day focused in God and not on yourself. So that you can concentrate more on what you can give to God that on what you can get from God. So that you can thank God for all that he has given you instead of focusing on what you don’t have.

Want to know another secret? When you focus less on you, and more on God, amazing things happen. You become a much happier person. You have peace in tough situations. You learn how to be content in all circumstances. Now those are the kind of makeover results that only God can produce.
