Focus on What is Ahead of You!

Focus on What is Ahead of You!

On July 4, 1952, Florence Chadwick was on her way to becoming the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel. She had already conquered the English Channel. The world was watching. Chadwick fought the dense fog, the bone-chilling cold and the sharks. She was striving to reach the shore but every time she looked through her goggles, all she could see was the dense fog. Unable to see the shore, she gave up.

Chadwick was disappointed when she found out that she was only half a mile from the coast. She quit, not because she was a quitter but because her goal was not in sight anywhere. The elements didn’t stop her. She said, “I’m not making excuses. If only I had seen the land. I could have made it.”

Two months later, she went back and swam the Catalina Channel . This time, in spite of the bad weather, she had a goal in mind and not only accomplished it but beat the men’s record by two hours!

Many times in life… we need to put “blinders” on. Blinders were commonly used on horses so that they could keep their vision on the road or the racetrack that was AHEAD of them… so that they wouldn’t get off track.

As people of God… we too must learn to put blinders on. When you have your blinders on… it will help you keep focused on your destination and what is ahead of you (your future)… so that you don’t focus on the junk to the side of you, or your past that is behind you.

Be blessed today and walk in God’s abundance today!
