I tend to want to jump into my work like I did in an office but there's other things to do too. : ) I read a book on Freelancing and learned this is common for creative people transitioning from office work. It's not at all unusual to leave an office anxious to paint, only to come home and stare blankly at the computer. We get used to being told what to do.
One of the things the book mentioned is to turn off the computer when I'm not using it. It's like TV I get dazed and my attention gets captured. I jump into the web look for one thing, then another. Sit back and wonder where my day went! There are lots of sideshow distractions in our generation. This verse promises if we focus, and watch what we're doing, God's plan will stretch out before us.
I think it applies to all aspects of our lives. We can always ask the Holy Spirit to speak to us and help us focus too.
I shot this photo at Ocean Grove in New Jersey. I thought it would be cool to get an angle shot from the boardwalk up. And then people started showing up, the only one looking straight ahead is the lady on the left. The boardwalk symbolizes the road we follow, the plan God has for each of us. It's right in front of us, but we tend to look in other directions.
