Learning to stay focused...

I have learned a lot in the past week and a half. Sometimes, I feel like I’m just dreaming.
I’m not. I know because I’ve pinched myself. {not really, but I know I’m not dreaming.}

Some things were happy things…  <3 Other things that came with it were hard. I knew things would be hard. I knew it. I know things will get harder, and I’m trying to prepare myself for that.

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.
Psalms 27:14

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:9 

In the past week and a half I have been working on writing down verses. Basically instead of making lists to write in my journal later, I just wrote them all down. I think that I have written maybe 20 pages of just verses{and occasional thoughts}. I decided to write them down so that I don’t forget them later when I look back on NOW.

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him:
Psalms 37:7a

And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
Psalms 35:9 

Even though things are hard right now, I am HAPPY. I know this is what Gods will is. I know that God will give me the strength to go through the really super hard days{I know there will be many of them}. Some people wonder how you can be happy through the hard things. You can’t, really. Not unless you stop focusing on yourself- you have to keep focused on Jesus. Otherwise you won’t be able to function. {believe me please.}

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation:
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41 

Stay focused.

The things I’m gonna stay focused on…

*Reading my Bible
*Writing down verses
*Memorizing verses
*Studying the Bible
