There have been many times in my life when I found myself focusing solely on my problems, my misery, or my past mistakes. Our focus determines much of our walk. I have always heard, “You will walk according to your mindset.” Colossians 3:2 states, “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth” [NASB]. Roll over your burden to the Lord and focus on His truth.

“Focusing inward on our misery traps us in our own private dungeon, and we lock ourselves away from those richer interiors that provide the healing and wisdom we need.”
―David Jeremiah, When Your World Falls Apart: See Past the Pain of the Present
