Staying Focused

keep-your-eyes-on-the-prizeI should have known something would crop up after I posted my random thoughts. I was simply sharing how I am feeling. I really think a trip to New York is in order. But that is not what this post is about. I am in a focused state of mind and can’t allow anything to distract me. So when I heard to Lord say to go read a spirit of prophecy, I was encouraged. Here it is:



Beloved, stay on track.  Don’t let anything derail you from your focus on things that really matter–things of eternal value and importance.  The enemy will do all he can to cause confusion, condemnation, and distraction.  It is up to you to resist the attacks of the enemy, keep your thoughts under the rule of My Spirit and to control your emotional impulses and responses.  Then, trust Me to give you wisdom and direction in all things, says the Lord.  I am for you!

Psalms 119:133 Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.



Beloved, regardless of circumstances and chaos around you, I would have you find the place of peace within you–in the Spirit.  Establish yourself in complete faith and trust that I have heard your prayers and will direct your steps according to My perfect will.  Be alert to the spiritual revelation in these times that will build character and inner strength, says the Lord.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Random Thoughts 2

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s been so very hot here in Florida that I’m turned off! Since May it’s been so very hot. I can’t stand it anymore. ENOUGH! This morning I was watching GMA and I started missing home (New York). I honestly do miss the change of seasons. When I first moved to Florida, the first two years were a nightmare. I wouldn’t remember it was winter until I talked to my friends or family up north.

I miss fall clothing and coats and boots. Not so much the snow, but I do enjoy the snow some times. I do miss the cold weather around holiday, especially Christmas. To me 80 degree weather and Christmas just don’t mix.

I’m at the place where it’s time to make a change. I have been thinking about moving. Perhaps now is the time. Something is missing and I can’t go on without finding out what I need to do at this point in time.
