“God is the bull’s eye of life,” Noah said with a grin as we wrapped up the devotion time at archery camp on Saturday.

“And the devil is all the white stuff,” another boy quickly added.

It was a precious moment.

 A moment when I saw with fresh eyes just how easily kids “get it.”

Why do adults make God’s plan so complicated?

Why do we add “what ifs” and “whys” to His very simple plan?


Shoot straight.

Watch your form.

Keep Him the main thing.

Your center.

It’s so easy to get distracted by the “white stuff” of life,

but there’s nothing more freeing than regaining a view of life that is totally focused on Him.

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us,

let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us,

and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

 fixing our eyes on Jesus,

the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,

scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:1-2

I’m praying for a focused day today.

Love you all!
