Staying focused...

"3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." 
~  Isaiah 26:3 (NIV) ~

"I have gifted you with amazing freedom, including the ability to choose the focal point of your mind."
~ Sarah Young ~ 
"Jesus Calling ~ Enjoying Peace in His Presence ~ Devotions for Every Day of the Year"

     My Aunt Nan recently sent me a book that has helped her in the last year as she has faced challenges she never thought she would face.  Her strength has come from knowing that she has never been alone in her trials. Not just does she stand tall in her faith, but she has been supported by her children, her brother and sister, nieces, nephews, and many, many friends.  She has kept her focus on Him, and her trust in Him, and that has helped her to find peace with what she has been going through.
Are you just focused on the small things?
     My journey towards living a mindful year has brought some things into focus for me.  What life really boils down to is whether or not you are focused on the things that are tearing you apart... or the things that are holding you together.

     When we let go of the details... the small details... and focus on the bigger picture... focus on those we love, those we trust, and what we have faith in... doesn't everything always work out better than we imagined it would when we were focusing on the small things?
