Poem for thought

Redirected Focus

Sometimes life causes one to be unfocus
Making one head in the wrong direction
The Lord can give redirected focus

Looking on Him in life one can refocus
Giving one a focused connection
As sometimes life causes one to be unfocus

With Him life is placed on autofocus
No worries of life's concerning rejection
As the Lord gives redirected focus

When life sometimes greatly alters one's path
The Lord is needed to guide one through
Steering one clear of unnecessary wrath

Focusing on Him one's path He knew
As in giving one a more stable life
In trusting in Him one path is true

In life one's path sometimes brings strife
As sometimes life causes one to be unfocus
But, eyes on Jesus one knows of afterlife
As the Lord gives one redirected focus

Thoughts: So many distraction in the world that it is easy to loose focus in direction; especially when one forgets that life here is not the end game. I know I get greatly distracted with things I have no busy dabbling in and/or worrying too much about a certain concerning area in my life. It is necessary sometimes to evaluate one's path in staying focused on the end game; the afterlife. As Paul so valiantly stated "I fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have keep the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but to all who have loved His appearing." (2 Timothy 4:7-8. NKJV). By staying focused on Jesus Christ one's direction is made more clear and one's path becomes focused on spending eternity with Him and not so focused on one's problems in this world. Eyes on Jesus Christ does help give one a more redirected focus when sometimes life causes one to be unfocus.
