As I start to focus on this year ending I am reflecting on various things such as being a little off track. I don’t like being off track so getting back on is always a good thing for me. I realize sometimes I messed up. I’ve made mistakes and I felt bad because I have missed the mark completely. I may have gotten off track, lost focus or lost my balance. Sometimes it happened at work, sometimes it was at home and other times at church. I’ve set spiritual goals, personal goals and life goals trying to be both purposeful and intentional. I start off good saying I will read and study more, pray more, watch what I eat, give more, serve others more. I will take time out for God, take time out for me, take time out for others and so forth. Each time I ‘ve gotten off track I learned a lesson about living on pitch. When I am off track on the job, off track with my health and wellness, off track with my relationships I must check how I am living and how much I am giving. I have learned my mistakes & mess ups are all based on the issues of life. I’ve learned a few lessons this year from the issues of life unfolding. For me, living on pitch involves full-time commitments, devotion to God and discipline. It doesn’t mean perfection. It doesn’t mean I won’t ever fall off track or lose focus at times when life happens. It just means I thank God He restores my soul. It means I thank God for brand new mercies every morning. It means I do not lose heart. Now that’s what I call Living on Pitch.

Thanks for this encouragement! Focus on direction not perfection!
Thank you Lori. Your insight is so encouraging. I’m a teacher but i’m always learning. Being off track for me is when I criticize more than I praise. But I can always turn my focus back to remembering that each one of us is imprinted with God’s image. I’m enjoying reading each of your messages.
