I can bring great concentration to bear upon any subject.
Evaporating away relatively unimportant and distracting
concerns and bringing the tasks God has given me to the center
of my attention.
Concentrate: To bring to a common
center, or to a closer union; to bring nearer to each other; as,
to concentrate particles of salt by evaporating the
water that holds them in solution.
I am easily able to concentrate on any task, and am not brought
under the domination of outside influences.
Since I work on tasks that the LORD has given me, I concentrate
on each one wholly; in the Power of the Spirit, the principalities
and archists of the Old Age cannot disturb me.
Because I meditate, I can concentrate.
I am not afraid to study diligently in an undisciplined,
My desire to engage in close examination pleases God.
I am committed to becoming more and more thoughtful.
People around me can depend on me to pay close attention.
The Spirit empowers me to consider and deliberate.
I appreciate deep thought.
My spirit reverberates with devotion.
My conscience knows the value of taking heed.
I am at home with meditation.
Being diligent is a real passion with me.
The works of the LORD are great, Studied by all
who have pleasure in them.
