Change Your Focus!

by Hazel Straub

Change begins with the mind. As a man thinks, so is he. Whatever thoughts you dwell and meditate upon is what you become. Focus your mind on God, not your struggles and change will manifest from your inside to the outside of you.

Cry out to God and ask him for help! He hears and answers.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. (Romans 12:1-2 MSG)

  2. True words for the heart, soul, and mind. When we focus on God our life’s challenges seem trivial in comparison.

  4. Thank you! I had a conversation with my spiritual dad and I was saying how I need overcome some struggles. Even this morning I was wondering on how I won’t give in to certain struggles. Your post reminded me change my foucs. I remember a time in my life when worship and prayer was my constant. And you know what I don’t remember giving into my struggles as much. My mind was preoccupied all the time with wanting to be with God. Needed this reminder!!!
