You Become What You Focus On

I try to remind myself every day to take a step back with God to look at what I’m thinking and why. If I don’t, it’s easy to let a wound or offense dominate my heart and mind.

If you’re consumed with negatives like rejection and resentment, those are the filters you’ll process your life with, and they’re what you’ll project at everyone around you. You can put a religious or political mask on them, but they won’t hide your pain.

But if you’re focused on what God is saying to you, you’ll deal with all you’re going through in his unrelenting grace, overwhelming peace, brilliant wisdom, confident joy, and complete love that continually heals you.

You’re a representative of the reality you give your attention to. So take the time to let God show you enough of his world to transform yours.

“We’re learning how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love itself, and all who live in love live in him, and he lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more complete” (1 John 4:16-17a).
