It’s hard not to focus on the things directly in front of us all the time—our phones, our schoolwork, our relationships. Sometimes it’s even harder not to let these things become an obsession. The problem with obsession is that it eventually takes all your time, energy, and attention away from you. So when you find yourself consumed by something, ask God to help you turn your eyes to something else, something truly life giving. When you feel tempted to turn back to your obsession, turn instead to God’s word.
