“I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come. I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.”
It shouldn’t be so hard to keep our attention focused on one sole thing, but wow is it ever hard? I’ve found that now that the days blend together and the routine is very much the same, day in and day out, that keeping sole attention has become even more difficult. But, that is what we have to do if we want to get something done from start to finish. The answer might lie in breaking up the big stuff into small chunks that we can move through until the whole is complete. Maybe somewhat like that jigsaw puzzle in the other room, we get things done, one piece at a time.
Sole attention is important, but “soul attention” is even more critical. To keep our soul attention during this time we might also be well served to break out our Bible reading time, our prayer time and our fellowship (Zoom Small Groups anyone?) time into segments throughout the day and week that keep us bringing our attention back to our soul. God tells us He is looking for our attention. He would love our sole attention but so much more that that, our soul attention.
