A Daily Devotional
About distractions in life...
Luke 10:41"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." (NIV)
As I am writing this, our new dog (a puppy) is driving me crazy. He is about six months old, terrified of people, new situations, and new environments. When he is afraid or anxious he barks incessantly but we are making progress. Well, sort of. As I am trying to write this (supposedly) deep spiritual devotional message, I have this animal distracting me. Life has innumerable distractions in it. Some distractions are good distractions . These distractions are the ones that take your mind off the burdens of life. Some distractions are bad ones. These distractions are the ones that separate you from the love and care of God. As much as you want to stay focused on God and what He wants from you there are always distractions that take you away from His presence. When you are distracted and realize it, just remember it is simply human to be distracted, and God understands as long as your heart and will are in the right place. It is Gods will that when you are pulled away from Him that you not be content or apathetic about being pulled away. It is Gods will that you be a warrior of the faith and defend your inner "turf" of the heart against the wiles and distractions thrown at you by Satan.
