Distractions

Distracted Squirrel

In the world today there are so many #distractions. There is always something that takes you away from getting to the point you need to be. These distractions will take you away from simple stuff like house work, a job, family and so much more. Sometimes it’s temptation; someone that you are interested in that you should not even consider, or porn (which supports #humantrafficking) a purchase that you do not need, or even a new and better way to believe. You might be listening to people who are telling you what you should be or even how you cannot do it, you know “you’re not good enough”, He tells you that you are: 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 ESV. People/yourself telling you that you’re dumb, you’re weak, or you do not fit societies “norm”. These distractions that we have put in front of our path are road blocks that the devil uses to stop us from getting rid of the “stuff” that needs to go!

The definition of Distraction: a state of mental uncertainty, a state of wildly excited activity or emotion, the act or activity of providing pleasure or amusement especially for the public (Social Media), someone or something that provides amusement or enjoyment.

Stop the distractions with these steps that God told us to do: Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil. Proverbs 4:25-27 ESV So ask yourself what is causing the uncertainty to complete the task in front of you? Is there something that is “Waxing your ego” causing a interruption? Do you sit down in front of a screen and the next thing you know you have lost 2 hours of your time? If it is distracting you through it in the garbage move on and don’t look back! No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV God’s #gotyourback all you need to do is #trust Him and #moveforward. Make the #move and know that what’s behind you stays there it is not worth your time, invest your time in something that is worth it!

Stop the Spin

Stuff

Right now we have so much “stuff” that is distracting us from looking at what is important. We need to stop drowning ourselves; it has taken us away from our family, friends and neighbors making us look #suspiciously at those who do not deserve it. As we have done this we have lost our most important thing we should #focus on #God. If we are #focused on Jesus all of the other “stuff” will work its self out.

Look

When we read our owners manual the bible we are told:  For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4 ESV Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3 ESV Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Proverbs 4:25 ESV Look to God and quit being distracted by everything that is going on around you(I have to fight with this one myself distractions are everywhere).

Stop

Stop looking to the world to fix your “stuff” remember: Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 ESV I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Psalm 32:8 ESV

Strait

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good Romans 12:21 ESV Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2 ESV Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 ESV As you can see He will #help you walk through the #junk you are dealing with we all just need to turn to Him in everything we do. He has the directions to #follow we just need to read them.
