We now have four additional drivers in our house currently. My oldest is experienced and independant, my second born third born as well and my fourth is just learning the road.
We live in South Carolina and for those of you who do not know what that means, let’s just say the roads are twisty, turny, curvy and THIN! Yes, often these back road make you wish you could put your vehicle on a diet, especially a certain 15 passenger van.
One of the hardest things for me is the night driving on these small, dark roads. With the cars coming towards you and the glare shining in your eyes. We instruct our children, when you get to where you can’t see, just focus on your line on the right. Why?
Because you turn toward what you look at!
If you focus on the glare of the car in front of you, your car will automatically pull towards that light.
And I got to thinking, is this not a biblical principle?
We will turn towards what we focus on.
When Peter walked on water as long as Jesus was in his sight he stayed this way…but the minute he looked at the water, he sank right into it!
So, this begs the question…where is my focus? Where is your focus?
As moms we can get so caught up in our daily duties we forget to keep our minds on Christ and our thoughts trusting in Him. We get discouraged, cast down, and fatigued.
Sometimes this means we have to talk back to ourselves as David did and say “Why are thou cast down oh my soul, hope thou in God!”
When the glare of the world’s discouragement shines into your eyes, where are you going to look? Where am I going to look?!
