    From Our Daily Bread:

    The eyes of faith when fixed on Christ
    Give hope for what’s ahead;
    But focus on life’s obstacles,
    And faith gives way to dread. —D. De Haan

    Focusing on Christ puts everything else in perspective.

    From Our Daily Bread:

    To prevent weariness and discouragement in our souls (Heb. 12:3), the Bible urges us to focus on Christ. When we pay more attention to Him than to our struggles, we will notice Him running alongside us—supporting us when we stumble (2 Cor. 12:9) and encouraging us with His example (1 Peter 2:21-24). Keeping our eyes on “the author and finisher of our faith” (Heb. 12:2) will help us stay close to the source of our strength and remain faithful to the finish.

    We can finish strong when we focus on Christ.
