With an Ant’s Focus

English: Leaf cutter ants , Iquitos , Peru.

While in a Panamanian rainforest, our birding group came across a long trail of leaf cutter ants. The ant highway was proof of determination. A clean swath four inches wide and as slick as a newly waxed car lay across our leaf-littered walking trail.

Even our big, human feet didn’t stop the insects from their final destination along their miniature highway. They pressed forward despite dangers and obstacles.

God asks me to focus on His final destination, but I sometimes wander about, feet-dipped in different waters. I spread myself thin, become involved in too many things.

Colossians 3:2 instructs us, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” As I enjoy the wonders created by God, His glory must be my focus. His path, my path.

How do you keep focused? Do you feel called to His plan but find yourself on side paths?
