So I've been in Barbados for four weeks and it feels like I've been here for a very long time. This feeling makes me think about the fact that I could have done a lot already but I didn't, that's why I call this blog post "trying to stay focused."
Travelling is always an exciting thing to do but Christians including myself need to remember that we have not left our Christianity at home while we are in another country. The need to be holy still remains, the battle against the enemy still exists, and the fight for salvation is still in view. Why did I say the fight for salvation? That's because we can't get caught up in worldly pleasures and forget that we have a duty to fulfill for the kingdom of God.
This past week has been rough also. I had personal struggles and confrontations that I wish didn't happen. This included another confrontation with my house mate where I got upset again. Also a misunderstanding / disagreement with my friend. Both incidents elevated my anger level and caused me to display that anger verbally hurting the feelings of others. When I look back I realize that during this past week I didn't have a firm grip on my salvation. I was so determined to get everything else my way that I didn't pay much attention to keeping my grip on salvation. What I want to remember from the experiences I had this week is:
If you're a Christian like me who is away from home, join me in holding on to salvation by allowing our focus to remain on God no matter what the experience may be like. I pray you have a productive week. May God bless you abundantly. xoxo
I want to hear from you. How do you deal with difficult people?
