Daily Reflection #1

I post on my Facebook group 3 to 4 times a week. I want to start sharing those posts with those of you who aren’t on facebook. It is just some daily encouragements. Thanks for stopping by.

 Here are a few things I’ve always known about myself, but I’ve been pondering about lately. I get distracted easily. I can get trapped by the fear of the unknown. I have a constant battle with insecurity.The good thing about knowing how I tick is I can be aware when attacks are coming from the enemy. Sometimes I have to put my Holy-Spirit-filled boxing gloves and punch him in the face. The first one, fighting against distraction:

I can get distracted so easy by a bunch of busyness. I don’t work well when I have a thousand things coming at me. My patience with anyone within striking distance wears thin. Usually, it’s the ones I love the most. So, how do I fight against this? I focus more on the important things. I become more intentional about the relationships around me. I learn to say the word “no” to the good things that want to weigh me down (It’s not all bad:). I often evaluate where I am, and I make the necessary changes to keep taking the next step to where I want to be, which is where Jesus is.

Lord, help me discern the best things for my family and me. Let me love my people well. Teach me to fight for joy and peace, because everything around me will quickly steal it.
Are you distracted?

“He will give you all you need from day to day if you make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.” Luke 12:31
