Staying Focused

So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer. Romans 12:1

Staying focused on God is a challenge for many people in recovery. There are a lot of us who struggle to keep our attention on anything for any length of time. Having difficulty with maintaining attention could be a symptom of a medical condition, or it could simply be that we never learned how to discipline ourselves in staying focused. Even people who struggle with attention deficit can develop a greater ability to stay focused.

Learning to keep our focus on Christ takes time, effort, patience, and commitment. Many of us have lived our entire lives without discipline, so breaking the addiction to being unfocused is going to take time. We might ask ourselves what we are getting out of remaining unfocused. Are we trying to avoid examining and addressing painful issues? Keeping our minds preoccupied and unfocused is how we avoid looking at issues that need to be addressed in our lives.

Christ is calling us to slow down, relax, quiet the racing thoughts in our heads, and simply be in the moment with Him. We don’t have to be perfect at being quiet. The ability to relax and just be still with Christ is going to take a while to develop. We might have to start out with a few minutes at first, and each day add a few minutes more. What’s important is that we start somewhere. When we make a commitment to focusing on our relationships with Christ, we will begin to see a huge difference in our recovery journeys.
