How your focus changes everything

An amazing transformation takes place when God is no longer the enemy.

For so many years I stared down at my feet thinking, I am unworthy. I screw up. I can’t get it right.

Then one night I had a dream. In it, the sky parted, heaven began to appear, and I knew at the next moment I would see the face of God. I thought I would be afraid, but I wasn’t. Instead, I felt a different feeling—awe. Like standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon, only a thousand times more.

This is what God tries so hard to get us to do: to stop, to look heavenward, to forget ourselves, to get lost in the wonder of Him.
