Focus on what you do

Faith Work Life Getting things done

Don’t be misled — you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7, New Living Translation

In the past two blog posts, my spirit was focusing on the monumental thing that was recently pointed out to me. But now that a couple of weeks have passed since that conversation with Steadman, the second half of this month’s scripture is ringing true with me. Near the end of that emotional conversation, Steadman gave me a great suggestion on how to approach getting things done. Essentially his suggestion was to keep track of the things that I’ve accomplished instead of letting myself become overwhelmed by the things that I need to do. (I wrote this Tutorial to explain all the steps.)

The second part of this scripture, is one that I’ve known for a long time. But it’s Steadman’s suggestion that really helped me connect the dots. If God’s word says that I will harvest what I plant, then it should naturally follow that I only concern myself with the harvest that I’m actually planting. As opposed to concerning myself with all the things that I haven’ done or that I should have done.

Although my life has been great thus far, I think that I can continue to grow in more areas of my life if I truly incorporate the second half of this scripture into my mind. By that I mean actively focus on the things that I plant. This scripture doesn’t say that I will harvest what I worry about. It says I will harvest what I plant. And with that in mind, I’m going to try Steadman’s suggestion and focus on what I do every day. Eventually what I haven’t done will be included in what I have done.


When was the last time you re-evaluated what you focus on? Is your mind is stayed on your goals and dreams or is your mind overwhelmed by all the things you need to do? If you’re overwhelmed, be sure to read this Tutorial.
