Tunnel Vision

Hebrews 10:36-Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. (New Living Translation)

What is tunnel vision? Well, it is an immense determination predicated upon absolute focus. This focus is the calling card to living a well balanced life. This focus is the moniker, a.k.a God, who allows us to accomplish our goals even when the road becomes flooded. However, this notion doesn’t bear immediate return. Why? ‘Cuz most live their lives out of appeasement. Most of society categorizes us by status, creed, or breeding. Mostly everywhere are mundane reminders that we simply don’t measure up. Thus, this outside world can’t be of concern to us. The actions of the immoral can’t be of concern to us, for the Lord never said this life would be easy. But God helps us activate our tunnel vision to run down the track like a horse with blinders—in an effort to aid us in staying steady on him, so we might endure until the end. Amen
