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.
