Giants: Working In Distraction


Hello Friends and Welcome back

I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God cares for you. No matter what you have on your mind God is listening. He has given us a powerful resource, His Word.

This week we are still talking about facing giants. Today we are going to talk about Working in Distractions. It is something that we all face. The dictionary defines distraction as a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.

“Now lets dress our souls like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY.”


Working in Distraction

“I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.” Psalm 119:15 ESV

The world is full of distractions. We are often pulled in all kinds of directions as we live in constant noise. Work deadlines, our children activities, and everything in between. It is easy to forget what you are doing when you are meeting yourself coming and going.

I can remember a former co worker and I were on our way to a meeting. We laughed and talked about everything under the sun. As we walked another staff member joined us, but said something negative to her. I could see and hear in her part of the presentation that she was not focused. Toward the end of a busy day, I heard a gentle tap at my door. She shared her thoughts about how hard it was to navigate through the meeting because she was distracted. She felt like not only did she suffer behind someones thoughtless comment, but her work did too.

The only question I asked her regarding someone else’s opinion was did she believe it? She smiled and said, “No. Now why didn’t I think of that earlier?” We both had a good laugh. In that moment she remembered who she was and whose she was. A child of the king. It was a lesson for us both.

Distractions are going to come. How will you respond? Work on answering distractions by reading Gods word and building yourself up in truth and not someones opinion. Can I get an AMEN?

Until next time, remember we are each others keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them.
