We live in a world where it’s easy to become distracted. You just have to go down your street to see the numerous signs seeking your attention. For example, businesses want your attention, and they will do anything to entice you to come into their premises.
Social media can also easily lead you astray. When you visit a website, it’s not uncommon to be swamped with advertisements, as you try to find what you are looking for. Once again, advertisers want your attention, and they track where you are going, to try to influence your decisions.
Even within your own home, you realize that it’s easy to become distracted. There are chores to be done, including posts to write, and you only have so much time in your day to get things done. So, today if you are feeling like you are being pulled in many directions, then let Jesus of Nazareth come to help you.
In the midst of my own busyness, I realize that its easy for me to forget about you. Please forgive me for focusing my attention on menial details, and letting my distractions get the best of me. Please remove any ungodly distractions from me, as you draw me close to yourself, and minister to my needs.
I give you my full permission to help me to stay focused on you. I look forward to seeing what you want to show me, how you want to speak to me, and what you have prepared for me, as we spend time with each other.
Thank you for your continued mercy, your ongoing grace, and your marvelous love. You desire the best for me, as you gather me to yourself so that we can walk together in seeing your kingdom come on earth, as it is in heaven. Amen.
