When I sit down to write or study invariably, someone needs attention, help, or advice. Truly anytime I venture to do anything, I'm interrupted. In the afternoons after school my door bell rings constantly, and if I have a sick child, everyone has to ask just in case the last neighbor didn't get the information correct. Maybe it's not a sickness; maybe it's a delay in play for homework. Currently two just walked out the door for school, and there is a small window before the next crew is up and moving so I'm writing. But because of the constant chaos of my home, I feel as though I have ADD. I'm not sure if I have the ability to focus anymore or if it's just my surroundings. (It's a good life, but it's been a little hectic lately.) Psalm 123 made me stop and think about my focus though. "I lift my eyes to you, O God, enthroned in the heaven." Through any crazy day, or troubling time, I need to keep my eyes on God. How do I keep my eyes on God through the day? Here are just a few ideas...start your day with God. Give yourself a takeaway or challenge for the day or week. Thank God at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Write verses and put them on your phone, in your car, or on the refrigerator. What helps you? Lift your eyes up to God, and let's keep our focus on him so we can see his working in our life.
