Focus on the maker - our God and plant our foundation firmly in his words, savouring every single verse/words carefully and he promised to give us the harvest in due seasons. I thought this is very meaningful and I chart this to motivate myself not to lose myself in the woods - worrying about the inevitable losses and forget the maker !
By having amnesia on losses, regardless of big or small is in a way denying it has happened. This denial clears the room in my head to store only the winning records - the big ones and the accumulation of small ones. Sieving through them make me happy and also drives me to outdo the previous records. Focus on what I had done right and celebrate the wins, big or small.
When one focus on the maker and his own portfolio without reference to the world out there, he has peace within himself as he stops comparing his results with others. He did things at his own accord, trusting the Lord that at its appointed time, he will reap his harvest in abundance. Imagine if all of us could do that, wouldn't this place be a better one to live in ?
