Autofocus

Two photographs for your perusal.

One taken quickly, without allowing autofocus to kick in.

One taken properly, the camera autofocusing on the beautiful daffodils.

I want my focus on Christ to be fixed, on autofocus. I pray that each day, my gaze will be automatically fixed more and more on His goodness, His mercy, His forgiveness, His love. All the other unlovelies will fade into the background, and all I will see is Him. Please, Lord Jesus, help me not to be so easily distracted.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2

Because Jesus Christ is all that matters. He is the most beautiful, the most perfect, the eternal.

Blessings, Lisa

Thoughtful Thursday

As you listen to this amazing classic by Bing Crosby, use each sheep in the picture to represent one of your blessings. And yes, I realize we are now counting sheep and blessings. Sorry, Bing. Wink, wink. I pray that you run out of sheep to count, and feel the peace and joy of Christ today. Blessings, Lisa
