Hmmmmm?

"What you focus on determines what you miss." - Brian McLaren, quoting a friend while preaching 09/18/05 on
Wow. That's one of those phrases that is really hitting target with me today. What am I missing because of what I'm focusing on? Where am I missing out because I'm not looking there? What am I focusing on, and does that mean that I'm missing something else?

Great quote, Rick!

That hits close to where I'm at, as well. I posted the quote on my blog, as well, with a link back to you.

As long as you are seeking first the kingdom of God, you aren't missing anything.

i don't know - that verse says "seek first His kingdom AND His righteousness......" - hmm? might be missing something still if i get too focused on His kingdom and not somehow on His righteousness as it's supposed to be lived out through me - hmm? :)

Sounds remarkably like CS Lewis in The Magician's Nephew. I really just wanted to say hello, you were the breath of fresh air to my ever darkening soul as I read at Slice of Laodicea.

but then...too much of this type of thinking gets you to the point of feeling like somehow you fail as much as you keep trying.

the other thought i had was: by marrying THIS man, who else did i miss? (not somethin you want to ask)
