I’ve been thinking and praying a lot about this spiritual walk I’m on. At the beginning I felt that I needed to fight off the attacks and demons that were continuously coming my way–but I found that got exhausting.
Lately I’ve been realizing that as long as we keep our eyes focused on Him, we’ll stay on the path He’s laid out in front of us, despite how many things come along to try to distract us or keep us off the right path. Focusing on the wrong things will lead us down the wrong path.
I remember when I was young, I was trying to learn to bowl and I kept getting gutters until someone told me to focus on where I wanted the ball to end up. As soon as I did that, the ball led straight down the middle of the lane.
Stay focused on the right path He’s laid out in front of you and you’ll get led in the right direction. The gutters or distractions will just fade into the background where they should be. We’ve already been created to win.
