Raising little girls comes with lots and lots hair combing! The process usually is straight forward unless their wiggling and squirming. During one of our style sessions my oldest decided to have something in her hands to read. This seemed harmless, but boy was a I wrong! No matter how straight she kept her back and neck...every time she looked down her body would slowly lean forward. I asked her to straighten her back and lift her head and then she would get distracted and look down...and then she started to lean! This went on a couple more times until finally I said, “Take the book out of your hands. And keep your eyes focused straight ahead!” Guess what...she didn’t lean forward and I was able to finish.
God is telling us the same thing. In Proverbs 4:25-27 the scripture says:
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. 26 Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. 27 Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
If we simply keep our eyes fixed on Him and not on the things going on around us it will keep us on the right path.
Prayer: Father God give me the Grace to stay focused on you. The temporal things around me don’t matter and they are subject to change. Holy Spirit I know you’re with me. Let me be sensitive to your voice. I will not look to the left or the right because it will only cause me to go down a path of destruction. Now ministering Angels be encamped about and protect me along the way! In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
