Single Minded Focus

Last night I started reading a book I had received in the mail entitled The 7 Hardest Things God Asks a Woman to Do by Kathie Reimer and Lisa Whittle. It was a gift from Lisa Whittle. Thanks Lisa! :)

It is the type of book that gets your attention right away. I have read a lot of fiction and nonfiction through the years and I love when a book can grab you from the first page. I have not finished the first chapter yet, but it starts with talking about having a single minded focus on Christ. This is often for us women because we are constantly multi tasking.

God started pointing out areas in my life lately where I haven't been single minded focus on Him, and have allowed other things to come in the way. They aren't necessarily bad things, but they can become that when they become more important than my Heavenly Father. So how are you doing with having a single minded focus on Christ?

I'm honored you would post something based on the book, and I appreciate your sweet endorsement of it!

I am like everyone else who struggles with keeping a single-focus on God while juggling all the many demands of life. It's really tough...that's why it made the "list" of the 7 Hardest Things! But remember...God would never ask us to do something that was impossible or out of our reach. With His help, we can juggle things in our life while keeping Him #1. That is good news for an overworked, clearly stressed juggling woman, mom and wife like me!

Thanks for sharing...
Lisa :)

I am also reading Lisa's book. Not quite finished yet because I have several going at one time. The book is hard to put down. I've learned so much about myself. I'm glad you were the winner!
