You have to look for the Cross

I was on the road awhile back and having a really low moment. As I sat in my hotel room, despondent, I was looking at all the squares, or boxes, in the pattern of the carpet. At the moment, it felt very iconic of how I was feeling – boxed in, trapped, frustrated. Then it struck me – for a fleeting moment; instead of boxes, I saw crosses. I felt really moved. I suddenly realized, thanks to the Holy Spirit, that one has to “look for the cross” and focus on that. You have to proactively remember to have Faith; you have to move forward.

I use the word “fleeting” because, just like in life, your brain can quickly shift back away; back to the negative; back to the boxes. It takes constant effort to keep focused on and see the cross; the positive. I’ve been working on keeping that focus. It has been hard, but, improving and paying off.

Keep your focus. If you are a Faith based person, keep it on the Cross; on Him. If that’s not your cup of tea, keep your focus on moving forward; being positive and not focusing on the past. Either way, it will be very rewarding.

Faith

Faith is relatively new to me; I became Born Again seven years go.

I was 180 degrees in the opposite direction.  I always thought “Born Again” was a bit crazy.  I’m now 180 degrees in what I think is an amazing direction.

I’m not going to “try to convert you” here.  Believing in God and Jesus is a very, very personal choice.  But, it’s been such an amazing thing in my life that I want to share if you are interested.
