Okay, so things are going wrong. Everything is crashing around you.  What is one of the first things you do?  You pray.  If you have not prayed in a while... you begin to ask God to listen this once and your make promises to do better or be better.  You try and make a deal with Him.  

Focus my friend focus.  

Every day you are focused on everything but God.  

Every day you are busy doing everything but without God.  

So instead of focusing on the problem at hand, focus on God. 

Focus on the cross. 

Focus on God's promises.  

It is through God's word that the world was created. It is through God's words that He sustains the world.  His word and promises are to sustain our spiritual lives so that our physical lives can blossom.  He provides the promise to you when you follow Him your nature begins to change from the inside out. With the change will come growth bearing "fruit".  "Fruit" you can share with others in your life.

Negative forces try to lure you from His promises. Seeds of evil are easily planted in all of our lives each day to turn our focus away from God.  We all face challenges, temptations and illnesses in life.  God promises to be there through all of it. Again, there is no magic wand, there is only the focus on Him and His promises.   King David said, 'I cling to your testimonies; O Lord do not put me to shame!" Psalm 119:31. 

Focus on His Promises not on your problems.

Words of my heart, 

"For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."  2 Corinthians 1:20

"Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, an sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
