“Without a focal point to guide you, you can easily lose your way.” Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
“Life in Focus” was created to add further depth and dimension to the Focused Living women’s Bible study at Community Presbyterian Church in Danville, California. The posts are primarily written to complement the specific Bible studies the group is doing, but are also designed to be accessible to anyone seeking to apply God’s word to daily life. Please join the conversation and follow the blog, whether or not you attend a church or Focused Living! As we share our stories, we will encourage and inspire one another, striving to put God’s truth into practice. We’ll grapple with hard questions and challenging dilemmas. We won’t have easy answers, but we will press on together, praying God reveals Himself to us in the process.
God’s word has much to say about where our focus should be:
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3
“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter 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
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
