Because three years ago I wasn’t fixing my eyes on Jesus. My focus was on others. I was too lazy to read the bible for myself and see what God was speaking to me. My eyes we’re occupied with more distractions of this world and less of Christ. and that shattered my faith. I read more books and I listened to more sermons than I read the bible and prayed. I was empty inside. I allowed all those things to define what I believed without going to the bible. Once I let go of those distractions and focused solely on God, my faith became new. I went hiatus for about 3 months because all I wanted was God. I wanted to know him. And it wasn’t easy to do, but I put my trust in Him. My passion is to encourage women to believe more in God’s truth than the world’s lies. And to test everything you hear. I discovered that by letting go of distractions and fixing my eyes more on Jesus. For the past three years he been peeling layers off of what I used to believe and by his Truth he continues to set me free. I want the same for you.
I prayed that God would lead me to a verse that focused on Him and he lead me here:
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
