Did you know the synonyms for distraction are
Looking back over almost fifty-four years, there has been a foundation laid which is unchanging. Beginning in my teen years, God’s Word became the footing for the future. The regular and ongoing reading and studying the Bible has been key in understanding why I’m here on this earth for a few years. What does God want for me today has become the question I want to answer for 2016 and however many more years I have. I cannot answer God’s purpose for you, nor will I ramble on with my take on life. What I would like to leave you with is the encouragement to press on today in your pursuit of knowing God. And, no I certainly do not have my act together knowing God, nor do I wear a halo. I don’t have all the answers but I know the One who does. My heart, mind and soul has been tried and I have found the Lord to be enough, when life has left tread marks on my heart, the Lord has been the light in the tunnel and He.is.enough.
We are all very busy with jobs, families, crumbs and clothes. But, time spent in laying down a firm foundation of getting God’s Word into hearts, minds and souls will prove to be more important than any crumb waiting for me or clothes that will eventually need to be ironed. May we all “…pursue as our goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
