Five Minute Friday: Focus

Focus. My mind is a swimming, swirling mess of lists, after thoughts, pre-thoughts, things I need to tell Bill, folks I need to call, rooms, shelves, cupboards, drawers to be packed, plans for here, plans for there, utilities to schedule turning on, turning off, school/medical/dental/veterinary records that all need collected and transferred, appointments pending for inspections, sewage tests, and more, more, more...There's other lists I still need to make, Michael's birthday party I need to plan, shop for, and schedule, and I still don't have an exact date for this move. I need an exact date. But we're still waiting on paperwork from Tennessee. I can't sleep at night for all this mess churning restlessly in my head.

Focus? I find little moments throughout the day to stop. Sit. Breathe a prayer. Head in hands and the swirling chaos subsides for a few seconds. He is in there, waiting, holding me up, keeping me together. Little pieces slide together, the puzzle picture slowly showing an occasional glimpse-almost there...almost there...In these moments, I find my focus, in Him.

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
~ Psalm 62: 6-7
