Staying Focused on Christ

All we can manage is our OWN selves. If we, ourselves, focus on Christ, WE can become tiny harbingers of peace and love. That is all be can do. That is all we are called to do. FOCUS ON JESUS! HE will accomplish the rest. There is nothing good He cannot do through us when we only focus on HIM.
