Hyde Park, London
it's February 1... time for a new memory verse!
my verse for this month is a reflection of the fact that I get easily distracted. I admit it. I'm probably one of those people that's been living with undiagnosed ADHD, for years!!
I do love immersing myself in a project but I usually struggle to stay focused on said project, and keep clear of doing too much at once. the jury is out on whether or not multi-tasking is a benefit or detriment to your brain. does it help or hurt your ability to function. does it enhance or hinder ones level of productivity? I suppose it depends on you and your own personal preferences. except when it comes to sin...
in our relationship/life with Christ distraction comes at a steep price and with severe consequences. a lack of focus can mean a painful falter, a bad fall, a serious failure.
keeping your eyes on Jesus and a guard about your heart are imperative. letting your guard down, allowing your foot to stray, taking your eyes away from the road WILL cost you.

the passage of scripture I've chosen to memorize this month is a reminder to me of the importance of focus:

crystal;whitefish; Proverbs 4:25-27 (NLT)
"look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
mark out a straight path for your feet;stay on the safe path.
don't get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil"


can't wait to see your verse! post it here!!
