One Focus

We were given
A pair of eyes
Which can only look in
One direction –
Be it left, right,
Up or down –
So that our eyes may be
Fixed upon
Christ, who is
Seated at the right hand of
God in heaven, and
Forget ourselves entirely.

This
Is the cure for
All insecurity:
Not an unconditional loving or accepting of self,
Which only feeds the worm of self-absorption,
But a hearty denial of self
For Jesus Christ.

(Matthew 16:24)
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, 

If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross,
and follow me.
