Christ as Your Positive Focus

focusIn Jesus Calling, Sarah Young speaks the following words (partly based on Matthew 1:23 and Psalm 37:4) to the reader, in the way she sensed Jesus speaking to her about her focus:

Let Me be your positive Focus.  When you look to Me, knowing Me as God with you, you experience Joy.  This is according to my ancient design, when I first crafted man.  Modern man seeks his positive focus elsewhere: in sports, sensations, acquiring new possessions.  Advertising capitalizes on the longing of people for a positive focus in their lives.  I planted that longing in human souls, knowing that only I could fully satisfy it.  Delight yourself in Me; let Me become the Desire of your heart (p. 45).

Is Jesus the “positive Focus” of your heart or has something else become your dominant focus?  What would it look like for you to have Jesus as the central focus and “desire of your heart”?
