Walk – Adjust the focus

You were God’s expensive purchase, paid for with tears of blood, 
so by all means, then, use your body to bring glory to God!
1 Corinthians 6:20 TPT

Www p5K Day 25, 26, 27,28: Wow.. the journey of the walk continues...
I am loving every minute of it. 

Hope you all had a wonderful and glorious Christmas and weekend too!

This Christmas was so different for everyone 
For me it was a new experience 
But before I dive in and forget the reason 
I want to give God the Praise

Praise the LORD
I will praise Him with my whole heart
The works of the Lord is great

Why was it different?
I was in a Tier 4 zone, 
to be honest I don’t even understand what it all means
But I do know no mixing of household

First time I slept in my own own bed on Christmas day
What are you talking about? 
Well see every Christmas I will pack an 
Overnight bag and stay at mum’s or my sister and kids

This time I stayed at mine 
And walked to my mum in the morning
Really, why? Because I am insane and I love walking
 
And I wanted to see if the streets will be empty too
I have never done it before on Christmas day
you know walking outside the house 
Well how was it? Hmmm

I was pleasantly surprise that a lot of people 
took this opportunity to walk outside and 
we were all smiling and wishing each other
Merry Christmas!, waving, Merry Christmas!, 
waving and smiling, Merry Christmas!

It felt like those singing movies that we love watching, 
really? yes and  I wanted to sing but...   
With my voice, you know singing is not one of my blessed gift 
It was a good walk and it felt magical waving, smiling...

After spending time with my family
No drama all just happy to see each other 
Then I got home and put the leftovers in the fridge

What can a girl do now?  
I decided to go out for a night walk, thanks be to GOD
The weather was nice, I mean not raining
So I picked up my Camera and left the house

With my camera for a change because there was no rain
Forgotten the feel and look of my camera 
I haven’t used it for so long
I had got so use to the phone camera 
I had to stand and just adjusting taking shots 
Making sure everything was right
ISO speeds, Aperture and it made me feel alive again 

In the midst of this picture taking 
Refocusing and taking pics and adjusting 
Life has been full of adjustment this year

We all had to refocus, get  the right 
shutter speed, with all the bubbles and the distance from everyone
Wow God it has been terrifying, wonderful, and eye opener
The list goes on and on 
With the emotions ups and downs
But there is one thing that has never change 

You my LORD,
No matter where we are God is always focus on us 
The right shutter speed, aperture
 
His focus is always right the picture is never blurred 
He does not need to adjust any setting 
For He knows exactly where we are and what time to
take that picture and it is always at the right angle

Nothing is a surprise to Him
When I cry, grumble, pray, worship, 
laugh and want to pull my hair out
It does not surprise Him

So I smile at my God because His angle is perfect
And He smiles back for His Son will shine at each one of us 
daily, it might be that it seems the darkness is too
much but He is never out of focus

I might try to run because I lean on my own understanding 
but He is there 
If I run to the deepest and darkest place in my house
closing my door to the world
Not wanting to contract the virus 
Or not wanting to see anyone
He is there in my house

I go out and in the midst of the virus helping the sick 
He is right there with me 
He will always have the right focus
 
So Father today I am adjusting my focus and 
pointing the lens only on You Jesus 
For this year has made me adjust my angles 
The lens was pointing sideways, downwards and 
self focus never in Your direction

I have been so focus on the things of the world 
that the lens have got blurred 
So as I readjust the lens and looking 
I see my bridegroom waiting for me and 
He has never left the spot I left Him

Smiling and walking towards His arms wide opened 
leading me to You Father
What a glorious day that will be when I finally get to the end
First I need to walk this marathon and 
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
 
To receive the power and riches and wisdom
And strength and honour and glory 
and blessing 
What a beautiful smile awaits me
You are worthy O LORD 
To receive the glory and POWER

Thank you for stopping by. May the Spirit cause this season to bring comfort, assurance and gladness as you go about your day. In Jesus Name, Amen.
