About keeping your focus…
2 Timothy 4:4 They will turn their ears
away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all
situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the
duties of your ministry. (NIV)
There will come a time when life erupts into chaos. Each of us has a time when life seems to come apart at the seams. Some of us may live to see a time when all of life on earth is plunged into chaos. However, we need not fear. In times of chaos, when things seem to come unraveled, we need to keep our focus. In times of chaotic happenings, we are to keep our head and our wits about us. Our ability to control our life is of critical importance. We must, when things turn dark in life, maintain our focus and preserve our self-control. We cannot witness or help others in Christ's name if we have turned helpless and have lost control over our life. When tough times come, we are to endure. We are not to wilt under pressure. When difficulty rages in our life, we are to humbly pray each hour, humbly go where Christ leads us as we show His love. Chaos comes into a person's life and ends up being a test of faith. Whether we pass or fail a test of faith depends upon how much we are willing to endure. We pass or fail according to how much effort we put into living a life of faith.
