God Has a Way

God has a way of working it out,
Everything that you're worried about...

Not always how we think it should be worked out, nor in the timing we would like. Sometimes it's our fault entirely and He still works it out. Sometimes it seems it will never work out. Sometimes I get impatient and try to work it out myself.

But if I let Him, in His time, He'll work it out.

To Focus on God like Batting at Softball

I should have had a 1.000 batting softball Monday. That would mean I got on base everytime.

But... As I'm batting, and afterwards, I only focus on one thing - batting the ball far enough, and getting to 1st base.

And ... after I bat, I tend to sling my bat behind me, in the general direction of the catcher and/or umpire..... Which is dangerous, and can really make the umpire mad.

So after one warning, where I slung it behind me, the next time the umpire called it an out, even though I got to 1st base. It was my fault. What I did was dangerous.

Every time before I go up to bat, I think, "I've got to drop the bat. DON'T THROW IT!!!" But when I bat, that never even comes to mind.

I will somehow figure this out, but as I was thinking, I was like "Man if only I could get that kind of focus on God."

At church, to be so into Jesus that the stuff around is just background noise. When I pray, my mind is focused on God and doesn't wander off into what I plan to do tomorrow. When reading the Bible, that the Word becomes alive, and I don't think about some movie.

To focus on God like a laser beam.
