Focus the noun, “the center of interest or activity” or the “state of quality. When we use focus as a verb, the word pertains usually to our eyes and our ability to see clearly. Or it’s our ability to pay particular attention to something that is important to us.
On Friday, we rolled in a new year! Ready or not 2021 is here and well on its way. For 2021, I am stepping outside my comfort zone and my plan is to have short 3-5-minute videos called “Tuesday’s Talk”. During these videos, I will focus on different ideas or concepts each week. Here at Total HealthCare, we believe in treating the whole person-body, mind and spirit. So, our goal is to provide tips or pearls to help you improve your health. We look at each person individually and assist you in reaching your healthcare goals or needs. We are all in different walks of our life and have different needs.
For January 5th, 20201, our video was your “Focus Word 2021”. Where is your focus for the New Year? What areas of your life do you need to focus on? Five to six years ago, my pastor at Fort Trial Baptist Church, introduced the concept of picking a focus word for the New Year. This word will go with you throughout the entire year. It is to be a word of encouragement; the word should provide guidance and direction for the year. The focus word should encourage you to grow throughout the year.
Each year during the month of December, I prayerfully pick out a word to guide me throughout the next year. Some of my past words have been patience, perseverance, peace, together. My FOCUS word for 2021 is TRUST. Opening a solo medical practice in the middle of a pandemic is probably not the smartest idea that I have ever come up with. But here we are, Total HealthCare, opening the doors December 1st, 2020. It’s important for me to trust God, my family and friends as I start this new endeavor in my life. The Bible verse I will use to guide me this year comes from Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” (NKJV). It’s amazing to me after prayerfully picking my focus word, it has come up in several of my daily devotions, the sermon on Sunday morning, January 3rd. Is this a coincidence? I think not!
Tell me about yourself and your FOCUS WORD for 2021!
