Focus requires goals and direction. Long-term focus requires goals and direction we find deeply meaningful. Simplicity is the thing that allows us to eliminate distractions and have available the energy to move towards our goals.
Our daily battle is against the noise of life, and avoiding a feeling of muddling or going through the motions. What do we do if those goals aren’t so clear?
Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
Discovering purpose begins with loving God.
In the midst of life that can make us feel like we are being swept away, prayer and fasting can help center your soul and focus your mind on the core of what matters, loving god, each other, and ultimately ourselves in way of humility.
