I have a hard time with focus. It really bothers me. Not focusing means details and commitments fall through the cracks. I can't count the number of times I've disappointed people, even in the last week, because I'll say, "I'll do that.", yet forget to do what I said I would do. Or, worse, let it keep dropping to the bottom of the list.

I'm committing myself to greater focus. More than that, I'm committing myself more to Jesus because he never disappoints. One of the ways I'm doing both is by keeping reminders of what's most important in my desk: Word, water, and table. "Take ye authority to preach the word." "Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." "Do this in remembrance of me."
