focus focus focus

It's easy to do from your camera.  
All you have to do is hit auto focus, and wow. 
All your pictures turn our hunky dorey. 
Point and Shoot. 
Easy peasy lemon squeezy. 
Perfectly focused images all the time.

The struggle begins when you find out there is more to life than auto focus.
When you have the tools to actually manipulate what your images actually look like.

and you start learning and you very quickly find out that you need to practice
 using those tools you have for proper focus.

often times you will fail. badly.

sometimes, the thing your focusing on is in motion 
and you realize it shouldn't have even been a focal point anyways.

and then there are the times when your focus just plain stinks. 

 You must stop what your doing and hit rewind 
and go back to the basics of training yourself how to manually focus.

"My eyes are ever toward the Lord,
 for he will pluck my feet out of the net." 
Psalm 25:15

He requires something of us, 
every day,
 every hour, 
every minute, 
every second. 

Never did He say life would be simple and on auto focus.

He simply said, I'll help you out of the net your going to be in. 

He wants your focus to be on Him, and Him alone.

and yes, that takes training, practice, time, energy, and dare I say work?
