I just posted this on someone else's blog as a comment, but I think it can stand alone as a post. Sometime's bloggin' is just like talking to yourself out loud.
My girls gymnastics coach always tells them to keep their eyes on the end of the beam and they won't fall off. But if they keep looking all around them, or down at their own unsteady feet, then they get shaken. We have to keep our eyes on Jesus all the time, or we get shaken, and distracted by all that is going on around us. Maybe good things, maybe not, but distracting none the less. Phil 3:12 and 3:14
