Focus

FOCUS

 

     I have never been able to focus on just one thing.  Of course everybody that I grew up with used the word concentrate not focus.  Those words have basically the same meaning.  In my belief they have gotten a worse over the years.  Think about it.  Through time mankind has came up with different things.  Now each of the many things that we have came up with gets attention for a while until something new and exciting comes around.

    Back in the day when Jesus Christ walked among us as man there was not as much going on. God – Jesus Christ knew that he had to sacrifice himself to save us from our sinful nature.  God knew that mankind would figure out technology and that alone would distract many from his word.  Eventually we would develop weapons of mass destruction.  You know nuclear weapons.  That cause fire and will bring the earth to a screeching halt for ma kind.

    Ok I will shut up and get back to the topic we are on.  But now you got me thinking on another topic.  I suddenly remember that some were in the bible Christ talked about wars and rumors of wars.  That is another distraction that will be in my head.  By the time I figure out what is all in my head.  I will be dead and in heaven and what I’m writing won’t matter any.

    Yea, yea, yea, I know to get on with it.  When I was relearning how to do everything again the therapist that was assigned to me told me to concentrate on what I was doing.  When they said that to me, I could not believe they had they would even say that to me.  So I wanted to slap a knot on their head.  They have not gone through the same thing as I, or at least not to my knowledge.

    I could only wish that I had the concentration or focus that the lord Jesus Christ had.  Our even any of the apostles and another thing for Christ coming at the time he did.  Nobody would have believed that he preformed all the miracles that took place because of all the technology we have now. 

    We blame the concentration that of our children on a chemical in their head or how they have been taught.  Has anybody given it any thought to the fact that we have so much going on in the world?   I was under the assumption that we were supposed to raise our children to become either men or ladies.   Of course now the children getting raised by the schools now pretty much.  From what I see is that our own government has the parents tied on the way that they are disciplined.  If you think about it as well the schools which are controlled by the government can teach them what they want.

    We are losing our freedom and the bad thing is we are letting the government tale us how we live in the future.  I hope that I’m not the only one that sees it like that.  It looks like to me that our evil little beating hearts are being bought out just like Judas was.  You know the little evil one who sold out and betrayed our lord and savior Jesus Christ.  

    We can’t blame the government, lawyers, celebrities or the technology on how some of our children act.  Parents have a great deal of influence on that.  Im glad in a way that I don’t have a child.  That is a very big responsibility.  I was blessed on having a great family.  They did set high standards on me however they taught me very good morals and ethics.  Back in my days of school they did not have all the things to get distracted on.  I have to admit my parents were outstanding examples.

    I do know that I was not content when I ran out of dope.  Even running out of cigarettes or snuff drove me nuts.  I don’t like running out of money but I got use to not having any now.  Some reason when I did have money I got into more trouble and accumulated more habits.  They were usually bad also. 

    From what I can see and hear about is that our country America’s focus is on money.  We need to get back focused on what we were found on.  You know God.  Jesus Christ said himself in the book of Luke chapter eleven verses seventeen, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation (confusion), and a house divided against a house falls.”  Didn’t our own president of our own nation, try to sue one of our own states.  And he calls himself a Christian.  Is that not hypocrisy if we say we are the United States of America?  Well I take heed to what God says.  So, I need to focus on being content with what I have.

    Another one of Gods infinite words of wisdom is located in the book of Matthew chapter seven verses three four and five, ”And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

    “Hypocrite!  First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Don’t you think we need to fix our own land before trying to fix other places?  In my eyes we are doing the opposite.  Are we being hypocrites?  Our focus needs to go on our own land. 

    We have created so many distractions.  I don’t know about you but I get distracted pretty easy.  We are the one that are held responsible for getting distracted.  It is your choice to let whatever it is break the concentration between you and God, task, job, or whatever your focus is supposed to be on.  You can blame the devil, God, somebody or something.  But the real blame is your reflection. 

    Some of the things like smoking, dipping, gluttony, and even your chosen entertainment whatever it may be can and will interfere with the time you could spend with your loved ones.  I do know that smoking and dipping kept me away from going to church and even a get together.  When I got on drugs or seeking my own pleasure it affected everything.

    I often wondered why my step father (Glenn Pointer) always worked.  It seemed like he never took a break.  I hate to stay busy all the time.  But it took me being in a wheel chair and many different trial and tribulations to understand why he stayed busy.  It seemed like the more time I had to myself.  The more ways I can think of deviant plans that would bring more kayos and drama mixed up in my life.

    Did you know that Jesus Christ said to a bunch of people that told him that his own mother and his brothers were standing away from him in the crowd of people and could not get to him but they desired to see him?  Well in the book of Luke chapter eight verses twenty one Jesus Christ replied to them saying, “My mother and my brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it”  That told me that they already put Gods word to practice.  He kept his concentration on spreading the word.   

    That tells you that they were already putting his will to practice.  They were Jew just like he was.  Anybody that fallows the will of Jesus Christ would be a Christian in today’s society.  Yes he was a Jew.  So when the Lord our God Jesus Christ said in the Old Testament the book of Second Chronicles chapter seven verses fourteen, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 

    It don’t matter who wrote that book.  All’s I know is that the bible is the truth.  When I put it to practice even though I can’t get do everything it says to do because it is way more wisdom than my feeble little mind can absorb.  I still try but what it looks like when I look around at others.  They have given up and are enjoying the simple pleasures in life that will only fade away and cause in our total destruction.  America is going to fall.  The world is going to fade away just as the computer needs to be updated all the time. 

    Our focus is on the celebrities.  You can see that just by tuning it in on one of the world news station.  I love watching the news about other countries and stuff.  I like fox news channel because it seems like it is more honest in a roundabout way.   It seems that they are money hungry as well because they put the world news on halt when a famous American celebrity dies.

    Is it just me or what im sorry but the world will keep on going.  Alls a terrorist group has to do is wait until a movie or rock star dies.  Then they can strike us when our focus is on that.  The reason they get all the attention is because of the fame that leads to drugs and drama.  Yea, drugs and drama now that’s a match made in hell.
