Life without a clear focus can become like a circus

Little done with focus is usually far more powerful than much done like a circus. Focus is powerful. What you continually pay attention to will mold you into its image.

We American Christians need to look beyond politics and reject demonic attitudes and accusations coming from both parties. Our politics would be more effective if it focused on working together to solve problems instead of on accusing the other party.

Any politician can accuse, but it takes an exceptional one to negotiate across the aisle and make deals for the good of the nation. Guilty people often accuse others, to deflect attention away from their own guilt. Perhaps we need leaders who don’t accuse.

Your own emotions and desires make for a fickle focus. If you stop focusing on what you don’t like, and begin to focus on how you can make things better, hope and creativity will fill your life.

People who daily focus on following the living Jesus are continually empowered and transformed by His presence. Since the living Jesus captured my focus, distractions have gradually faded away. People who follow and obey the risen Jesus have a heart connection and focus on what is much deeper than politics, race, or even family.

Anxiety is worthless; inner peace is priceless. Let the living Jesus change them out for you.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
