Don't Lose Your Focus

Sometimes the world looks a little crazy. When we watch the news we see and hear things that just do not make sense. We also live in a very fast paced world. We often suffer from information overload. Add to that the growing number of children and adults who suffer from ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and it is a wonder we can function at all. In Matthew chapter 14 we have a story of Jesus walking on the water. Simon Peter saw Him and got out of the boat and started walking towards Christ. Then he was distracted,lost his focus and as he turned away from Christ he noticed the waves and the storm. At that moment he began to sink beneath the waves. It is very important that we maintain our focus on Christ. When we turn away and begin to notice all the problems and distractions we many times begin to sink. How do we maintain our focus. Well, what you are doing right now is a good start. Take time each day to read from God's Word, to meditate on God's Will, and to talk with Him through Prayer. If we do it will help us to stay focused and keep our heads above water. Watch out for Polar Bears I saw one just yesterday.
Matthew 14:
28Peter said to Him, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
29And He said, "Come!" And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!"
31Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?"
