"Focus Daniel-san"

Remember that line from "Karate Kid"? :)

I have come to realize (and admit to myself) that I have not been focused. One quote I've heard many times in FCA is, "let's keep the main thing, the main thing." I have been keeping the main "things" the main thing. It is time for a change.

God brought this home to me in a conversation I had with a friend this weekend. I have been spread too thin (and I've known this for a while) and God's grace for doing all the things I'm doing is going to run out. He's telling me I need to focus on what it is He's called me to do. I think I've been running from it because it requires a lot. Shame on me.

I'm not sure how it will all pan out, but I believe as I begin to weed the things out of my life that I have been "filling in" for, God is going to open some doors for me that I can't even imagine. I'm reminded of the scriptures that tell us His ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts (Isaiah 58:8)....or how about the one that says, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Corinthians 2:9)

The fact is, I want to be closer to my Lord and Savior so I will hear His voice clearly. I don't want any interference...especially interference I've put there. How sad would it be to be too busy "doing" so that I miss "being" with Him?

So, here begins the process....weeding out the things He tells me to and digging in more where He tells me. It is scary and yet very exciting.

What kind of car are you?

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.
