How to keep your SACRED FOCUS

Darren Hardy, the author of Success Magazine, spoke about something very powerful he learned from a very-successful 92-year-old man: Our mission in life, however long or short it may be, must be to keep our sacred focus; to keep our divine purpose always in focus. How do we go about this? By writing out our 3 main life goals and daily doing something that works towards them. That’s it. We write out what could distract us from doing this, which he called the “Devil’s Vortex”, and we do our best to stay away from these things - those would be excuses, temptations and anything else that keeps us from staying focused on our divine purpose in life. 


As an example, I would like to lay out my 3-fold mission in this blog post and tell you my three main goals. When you finish reading this post, I would like you to spend some time thinking and praying about what YOUR divine purpose is in this life, and then write out your 3 main goals, plus the things that would distract you from accomplishing this goal. 


So, here are my 3 main goals:

1. Have a very strong relationship with the triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). I want to be able to trust Him fully; to know that He will provide for all my needs no matter what the circumstances may be at the moment. I don’t want fear to rule my life, but instead, I want to acknowledge Him in all my ways and allow Him to guide and direct my path, knowing He will give me the wisdom to know how to proceed; my job is to simply follow His counsel, wholeheartedly.


2. Make sure my family is thriving in every area -  physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially - not merely surviving from day to day. I want them to be able to thrive even when I am no longer around because God has called me home to rest in His presence.


3.The Blissful Haven project. This is the dream God has given me; it is the community center with the main goal to help people thrive in every area of their life - physically, mentally, financially, spiritually and emotionally - and to empower leaders who would like to do the same for others. The money to finance this project is in God’s hands. **You can learn all about this project at the page on this website titled “A Blissful Haven” (under “Making a Difference”) 


Those are my 3 goals; every day I start my day with God, asking Him to counsel me so that I may know what to do that particular day, and to help me stay focused, free from distractions that move me away from that sacred focus He has given me. It makes for an amazing peaceful life! I pray that my lifestyle will attract people to HIM, not to me, so that each one of you can see all that He can do for those who trust their life fully to Him.


Now, take the time to think and pray about what YOUR divine purpose is in this life. Write down the 3 main goals to accomplish this purpose and pray that God will help you stay committed so that God can say at the end of your life “Well done, good and faithful servant. You may enter into my rest”

So many great points here! And yes I love that this can be a vehicle to create time freedom ultimately allowing us to spend even more time with our creator.

Thank you for your comment on this post, Mary! Yes, when we seek Jesus and His Kingdom first, everything else lines up and we get to live peacefully.

I love how you cut away the fluff and busyness that we allow to distract us from the one who created us. If we seek Jesus first everything else lines up & flows
