Editor's Note: Focus is key to success. It is an indispensable strategy and element if we want to make good any vision that lies in front of us. It is also a necessary ingredient for any Christian to live an effective and impactful life. Distractions come in different packaging, the responsibility is on you to recognise them for what they are and bin them fast. The Holy Spirit our helper is likened to the Dove because one of the attributes of this bird is its singular vision. The dove has two eyes but has a single focus. So we need to see with a single vision just like the holy spirit. Concentrate your energy on the work at hand and disregard the wanton distractions. Nehemiah is such an exemplary figure on how to deal with distractions and remaining focused. Sometimes the distraction is found in the past. Learn how to keep focused with this beautiful, well written article by pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries.
