The Bible says " Looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith" who for the joy set before Him endured the cross,despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. ". Hebrews 12 :2.
I thought this verse is embedded in me, yet in my life I found myself forgetting this. Too often and sometimes for long period of time I found myself focusing on my problems, needs, disabilities, sickness, fears , etc. etc. I have the habit of looking to bail out when I am down. Yesterday I was reading a book on " Don't sweat the small stuff " by Richard Carlson and I found some wisdom in it. To paraphrase the author mentioned that some people put off happiness say for the future like retirement when we can be happy now. He recommended to practice happiness is the way. The word "way" caught my attention and I asked isn't Jesus the Way ?. My answer to that is yes , He is the Way, but I have took my focus off on Him, so I told myself to refocus on Jesus. These coming days will be interesting for me as I refocus on Jesus.
