We need to shift our focus when we get our eyes off God. It’s easy to get our eyes off of God, what He is doing in our lives and seeing His hand in our circumstances. “Shift” by Abby McDonald is an excellent book to help us to be mindful so we can reverse our focus. The subtitle is “Changing Our Focus to See the Presence of God” and that’s exactly what Abby’s words will do as you read and apply her words.
Abby shares some of her personal stories of times when she learned that by changing her focus it helped her to live with faith and trust in her heavenly Father. This is a very encouraging and helpful book. Chapter 2 Looking Past Our Expectations, was especially helpful. Chapter 5 Hope in God’s Plan or our Own? is another good one.
There are questions at the end of each chapter to help with this change in perspective. I highly recommend this book for Christians of all ages. “Shift” helped me to see God in my struggles, past and present ones. My copy is underlined, highlighted and tagged with post-its. This is a book I will refer back to often because it’s so easy to get my focus off of God.
