It is amazing how we can get so focused on something that we lose sight of the bigger picture. But more than that, it is easy to lose sight of the important things. There have been many times when I have been so focused on something regarding the church or ministry that I forget things like my health, my family or my spiritual life.
But the question is: “Are we aware?” Do we really know when things are going well or if things are going bad? Do we even know what to look for?
This is the reason why we need to train ourselves to catch some of these things early. Also, we need accountability because there are things that our accountability partner sees that we might not be able to catch right away.
The more aware we are of God, then the more aware we will become of ourselves and people around us. May God draw us closer to His heart.
Check out this video that someone sent to me. It is an awareness test to see how good you are in trying to know what is happening around you. Sometimes you have to know what to look for.
