focus


at times it seems that everything works against a believer ... distracting us from the REAL task ahead ... i often stop and ask myself ... "will this matter in eternity?" ... that is my own personal checklist ... short, sweet and to the point ...

whatever may be bothering you today ... ask yourself, "will this matter in eternity?" ...

This has been sort of my 'resolution' this year. Actually, more than that, I believe God has called me to it - leading a significant life. Is what I'm doing sowing eternal purposes or merely temporal.

You're right, we can become easily distracted if we're not living moment by moment in obedience to His call.

terry ... *smile* ... things are important here on earth, but sometimes i place too much importance on trivial things ... so it was a reminder for me ...

jel ... well, your welcome ... i need reminders and just take everyone else along for the ride!

gayla ... i like that "sowing eternal purposes" ... and you've made a good resolution for the year!

What a great reminder.

I hope you're having a great weekend, Saija.

fred ... hey there! hope things are well in your world ... i stop by your blog sometimes, just to see if you've written something - even though you did say good-bye ... or was it just aurevoir?
