“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’” – Matthew 22:37 NIV

This verse is very simple yet is a powerful verse. Sometimes I forget about focusing on Christ and I allow my earthly cares to consume me. I allow things to clutter up my heart and mind to the point that I lose focus on Christ.

Christ loved me so much He sacrificed himself on a cross to cover my sins. What He has called me to do is love Him wholly. Not just with my human emotions, but with all my soul. Sometimes when life gets tough I lose sight of this; I forget He cares. I forget that I must take everything to Him and He will help me.

This verse reminds me to always turn to Him. Even when life is going well everyday I need to focus on Him.
