I was recently reminded that where we place our focus determines our direction.
Where do you turn #first on the hard days?
Some days I have felt more frustrated or distracted than others, and realized the common theme to its outcome was where I turned to first. On those days when I have a bad case of “dropitis,” when the budget doesn’t look like it will stretch far enough to cover all my needs, or when my feelings get hurt by an unkind word or purposeful snub? On just such days when I run to Him first, I find my day seems brighter, I don’t feel alone or on my own again, and I am better able to forgive and let go/move on.
Purposefully seeking Him first can be quite hard, especially at first… but the Word reminds us why it’s to our advantage to do so:
“In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you & crown your efforts with success.” Proverbs 3:6 TLB
This week, join me as I take a closer look at the word “first,” what the Word says about firsts, and how we can refocus on Him #first.
