Life – One big Distraction

proverbs 4 25 27


Oh my goodness, I feel like I haven’t blogged for E  V E R! seriously I am so far behind my brain at the moment.  You know sometimes I plan things so perfectly that everything falls in to order neatly and just right.  Blogging and writing at the moment don’t fit into the category of my life anywhere {insert sad face} yet its what I’m most passionate about, writing for women, writing to encourage women of God to step out, giving you love from my computer screen to yours and it aint happening! The enemy is clever, theres no real direct attack here but I have come to realise that little distractions, little worldy distractions, little family distractions, really do sideline you from your calling……if you let them.  Last year I spent two a lot of time at church during the week, I loved it and this year I haven’t hardly been able to get there, I’m on my way I have said to Kara what feels like a zillion times, then a phone call, a distraction has interrupted my journey and away I’ve gone on another path.  Clever.

My hubby often says I get distracted far too easy, his favourite is.. me: ‘darling would you like a coffee?’ him: ‘yes please’ …..two hours later… him: ‘hows that coffee going?’ me: mmmmm sorry I forgot I just started folding the washing (thats not real I hardly fold) but you get the drift? I got distracted.

The opposite of distraction is focus…I have lost my focus somewhere along the way from January to now, distractions have clouded my focus and I have lost it.

Hebrews:12:1-2 says we must focus on Jesus: “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Focus Focus focus…where are you?? Distraction can also come from lack of time management, whilst my intentions are always great, the management of my time isn’t, team that with distractions and focus is GONE right out the window.

As I write this from my heart, I can’t believe what I’m actually typing, its true and I didn’t even know what was wrong until I wrote the above ‘the opposite of distraction is focus, I have lost my focus’ ARGHHHHHHHH It’s took weeks of being in a writing block, wanting to write or type (its been in my brain I just haven’t been able to get it from there to my fingers and then onto you girls) and only just now have I found the answer.  AMEN.

I now have a plan, a plan to limit distractions, a plan to manage my time and a plan to continually try to write regardless  but most of all I must maintain my focus and never lose sight of Jesus and His Purpose for me and for you girls.

Watch this space…
