If I focus on sadness, sleep will escape me and I will only fantasize of ways my sadness will increase. If I focus on sin it is like throwing gasoline on a fire, it will only intensify the desire until it has consumed me. And I contentment until I have acted out that sin. But if I focus on God my mind will consider what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and praise worthy.
What do you choose Christian? Where do you direct your attention? What will you allow to captivate your thoughts? Our thoughts should focus on Christ because He helps us keep things in proper perspective. When we focus on anything else our minds run wild and untamed.
It is a choice we must make. I can focus on things that are perishable and be robbed of my slumber. Or I can focus on Christ and give Him the worries of my thoughts because He desires to handle any worry or care I may have. Simply because He loves me. The answer is clear, think Christ like...just saying think about it.
