I like to think I can focus and sometimes I get close. I try hard. I want to be courageous. “I think I can.”
It doesn’t work. I know it doesn’t.
At the end of the day, it is God who keeps me focused on Him. No doubt about it. In an uncompromising way every day. Jesus challenges me to trust him and not myself. Jesus is my Master.
All praise and credit is His.
Now that the worst is over, we’re pleased we can report that we’ve come out of this with conscience and faith intact, and can face the world—and even more importantly, face you with our heads held high. But it wasn’t by any fancy footwork on our part. It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised. Don’t try to read between the lines or look for hidden meanings in this letter. We’re writing plain, unembellished truth, hoping that you’ll now see the whole picture as well as you’ve seen some of the details. We want you to be as proud of us as we are of you when we stand together before our Master Jesus.
~Apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 1:12-14)
