Too many of us mean well, try hard, and really work to do well — to succeed at our jobs, homes, marriages, raising our children. But then there are those things called distractions. We intend to do the right thing, but along the way we get distracted. We get overwhelmed, and our lives are overcrowded with stuff, with life.
It’s so easy to get distracted from our goals, our desires. We don’t intend to, it just happens little by little. Distractions creep in and choke out the word of God and, if we are not careful, can cause our dreams not to come to pass. We need to stay focused on the task, the goal, the word of God.
Distractions are those things that prevent someone from giving full attention to something else. There are so many things crying for our attention. We have to train ourselves to stay focused on our goals, the things at hand. It will take some work, but it will be worth it when we experience the results of a job well done, when the thing we desire comes to fruition. With all the technology out there we have our work cut out for us, but if we will give our attention to the task at hand, we will accomplish so much more.
It is distractions that are keeping the word of God from really working in our lives. The Bible teaches us it is the cares of this world that are choking the word of God in our lives. These cares, distractions, are keeping us from experiencing the abundant life God promises to those who stay focused.
Just a thought,
