Getting Back In Focus

When there is no vision, people get out of control…” ~ Proverbs 29:18 (CEB)

Several months have gone by since I have written a blog post.  Somehow along the way I lost focus of my vision to encourage others through my life experiences and the words that God gives me daily. Distracted by the routine of my own journey, I allowed my vision to become unclear and blurry. I have only focused on what was right in front me. I have become undisciplined and in a sense out of control.  I lost control and allowed other things to control me and how I spend my time; family obligations, work, school. All of those things are very important, but I still have a responsibility to stay on course and follow the vision. 

In the medical community this lack of focus is known as nearsightedness. A condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly but objects farther away are blurry.  The degree of a person’s nearsightedness affects their ability to focus on distant objects.  However, nearsightedness can be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses.

I believe we often lose focus on our vision because it seems like a distant object.  It seems so far away and out of reach. This distant and unattainable vision causes us to lose focus on what was once so clear.  We can correct this “nearsightedness” by changing our perspective, adjusting the lens of our mind, and refocusing on what was important when the vision was crystal clear.

If you had a vision of seeing yourself healthier, thinner, in a loving relationship, a different career, whatever your vision may have been, you can get back in focus.  Adjust your “eyeglasses” so your vision extends far beyond what may be distracting you today.  This doesn’t mean you will never lose focus again. It just means that you may need to remind yourself that it is time to clean your “eyeglasses” so you can see your vision clearly again.  As I close this post, I have my cloth in my hand ready to remove of the fog from the lens of my mind that has been holding me back from becoming all that God wants me to be. I hope that you will join me.

Embrace and enjoy the journey.

Be inspired, uplifted, and encouraged.

God Bless!

Thank you for taking time to post a comment. I think sometimes I am so focused of the challenges of the future that I get stuck in the paralysis of analysis and miss opportunities to make progress while in the process. We control the process. God determines the outcome based on the progress we made while in the process. I believe that for every step we take, He takes many!

Absolutely takes FAITH to take those steps...and this entry really put things,in perspective for me...i know where i want to be and now i have to take the steps to get there...Sometimes it takes another person to point out what we already know, thats why your blog is so important because it gives us a reminder of things that we tend to forget.

Thanks again for allowing us to see the work that God is doing in you.
