HELP ME FOCUS ON YOU

undefined
To the One who has my heart,
Please, Help me to focus on you.
Every now and then,
I find it… I feel it,
The constant tugging in my heart,
To see someone else,
Other than you.
To look somewhere else,
Other than where you are.
Oh! Help me to focus on you.
When my heart is sick,
When my days seem uncertain,
Help me to focus on you.
When I don’t know what to make of things,
When I don’t have the words to says,
Help me to focus on you.
When my resolve to stay with you and not let go,
Begins to shake,
Help me to focus on you.
When I just can't anymore,
Help me to focus on you.
When its hard to say or smile,
Help me to focus on you.
When my own desires are pulling me away,
Help me to focus on you.
When life's mysteries stare me in the face again and again,
Help me to focus on you.
When all I have is silence,
Help me to focus on you.
When all I have is ….you,
Yet, Help me to focus on you.
 
Help me to focus on
You who has,
Time and Season in His hands.
 
You who,
Calls forth Life out of Darkness,
Began the beginning before the beginning began.
 
You who is,
the Beginning and the End,
The First and the Last,
The Creator of the Universe and the manager of all time.
 
Jesus, the Lover of my Soul
Help me to focus on you.
Have my heart and hold my attention
Not some of it, all of it!
Let your interest become my life's aim and pursuit,
Let your truth run deep within my heart,
Let your word come alive in me,
Oh help me to focus on you!
 
Be my treasure and my reward,
Be my First and my Last,
Let nothing ever come….before
Help me focus on you.
 
Help me to find you,
In every season,
Be my joy in the midst of pain,
Help me to focus on you.
 
Oh Sweet lover of my soul,
Whatever my lot may be on this side of eternity,
Let me focus on you…ALONE.

I HATE THIS THING CALLED PATIENCE!!!

I HATE THIS THING CALLED PATIENCE!!!

I remember my little brother asking me to help him make noodles. I agreed to make it. Few minutes later, he walks up to me and says, “Aunt Zaina (as he likes to call me) is it not ready yet? And i’m like, No. (with my are you serious right now look) The water was not even boiling!

He comes back again, to ask the same question and i say, “you have to be Patient. Your noodles will be ready in no time if you’ll exercise some little patience.”

And that was it o, the next thing i heard was, “i hate that thing called patience!!” I saw his frustration as he walked back to the sitting room. 

I honestly felt for him (i didn’t at first because i thought he was being unreasonable) yet I saw it as an opportunity to teach him something good and i went after him. 

I explained to him, how Patience was a good virtue and how alot of things in life will come to us when we learn to exercise patience. I also explained to him that, if he rushed me, i would bring the noodles to him but it would be half cooked, tasting awful. 

Well, i don’t know that he was so interested in my sermon that day but that experience is something i will never forget personally.

It opened my eyes to see my true state as i relate with the Lord from time to time.

Alot of times, i am my brother. I may not express it as bluntly as he did but very subtly through my actions and inactions, i have screamed back at God, “i hate this thing called Patience! Why do i even have to wait?

Alot of times, i am my brother. I may not express it as bluntly as he did but very subtly through my actions and inactions, i have screamed back at God, “i hate this thing called Patience! Why do i even have to wait anyway? What’s the point to all this, God?”

And just like my response to my little brother He would say, “its part of the process honey. To get where you need to be, For me to get the desired result out of your Life, you will need to wait patiently for me to see through this cooking process. You don’t want to be half baked, do you?”

Dear Friend, 

I see how you want what you want so badly, i see how you are itching to get that phase done and move on to the next thing, i see how weary your heart sometimes becomes too from waiting…

But remember, that God loves us too much to put us through a process that doesn’t have a blissful end. And, if we yield to Him…if we wait P.A.T.I.E.N.T.L.Y for Him? We would reap the fruit of the process, of our individual processes, whatever that means for you at this time. You get the gist, don’t you?

If we trust Him, we will find that He’ll pull our lives off perfectly. So let’s Trust and wait patiently for Him.

From my heart to yours…
