Today’s technology makes things so much easier than they used to be in the past.  When I was a teenager my dad had a Vivitar 35mm Camera.  It had the different lenses and high speed film.  He would do much of his own developing in one of our bathrooms.  It’s amazing to think that he converted that bathroom into a darkroom.

One of the most important things to do for great pictures was to make sure the subject was in FOCUS.  If things were out of focus everything would look blurry!  And that would ruin a great setting and beautiful landscapes.

Focus is important, even today.  Webster’s defines focus as meaning “ADJUSTMENT for distinct vision.”  For someone to clearly see they must have VISION!

The problem in life is not WHAT is happening to you.  The problem in life is YOUR FOCUS while things are happening.  Helen Keller use to say that vision was more important than being able to see.  Why?  Because VISION gives FOCUS to life. 

It’s amazing how much emphasis we put on the problems and difficulties in our lives.  It’s so easy to get negative and enlarging the problems we face.  We need to start focusing on solutions to our problems.  Focus on the good things in life, on the positive.  Focus on the fact that things will get better.

The Message Bible says: “Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed (focused) in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed (unfocused) in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky. Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room” (parenthesis are mine).

            It’s a fact of photography that whatever we focus on will develop.  That is also a fact of life.  Don’t focus on cancer, focus on the CURE.  Don’t focus on sin, focus on FORGIVENESS.  Focus on developing a growing FAITH in a GOOD God.

The choice is yours, CHECK YOUR FOCUS!

Be blessed!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!

    Finally:

    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
