A laser beam has the power to cut through steel. Why? Because of focused light. The power is in the focus. Diffused light, while still light, cannot do what focused light can do.
The same is true of the human mind. The focused mind will accomplish far more than the distracted or divided mind. There is something that happens when we determine to focus. Focus seems to attract all that we need to get the job done.
For instance, have you noticed that when you decide to write poetry, you begin to see poetry everywhere you turn? Suddenly, you are discovering poetry books, articles on poetry, and even people who write poetry. Why? Those people and things were there all along, but your mind was not focused on them.
Focus provides antennae that reach out to draw what you need to fulfill your objective. So ask yourself today, are you focusing on your writing dream? Or are you distracted by so many other things that your dream is in shambles?
Remember: a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Let him not think he will receive anything from the Lord (James 1:8).
