When you need to change your focus {#Write31Days}

We live at the end of a cul-de-sacWhen.  Our neighborhood was built in the 70s and there are not a lot a street lights, although there are lamp posts in most of he yards.  When I am outside, it feels terribly dark if the house lights are not on.  It is hard for me to see anything.

Yet, when I am in my house, even at midnight there seems to be a soft light outside, making the outside seem brighter then my dark bedroom.   I prefer the dark when I sleep, but for some reason it is the light that draws my attention as I try to drift off to sleep.

When things are dark around us, it can be very hard to focus on anything else.  We start to feel surrounded by our circumstances instead of in control of them.  When we feel that way, we need to turn our focus on the good around us.  When things are dark, we must focus on the light.  We can learn to get out of the funk as we start to turn our focus on what is going right around us.  The more you focus on the light, the more you will begin to see it.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
