Keeping Our Eyes on the Ball

Proverbs 3:6 New International Version (NIV)

in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight [will direct your paths.]

So much of life simply comes down to where we focus our interest.  The focus can be broad or narrow (just so it is steady and a genuine focus).  It has been my experience that empathy with its byproduct compassion can overload us and we become nonfunctional.  The pendulum then sweeps from too much compassion to too little.  The secret is to allow God to direct our steps (in other words, to direct our focus--our available resources) to meet his will.  It helps no one to become a scatterbrain. We must learn prayerfully to keep our eyes on the ball.
