Static noise and visual distractions are everywhere these days. Our tablets and electronic devices are bombarded with visual ads trying to distract us. I just learned that highway billboard are now electronic and change ads in front of our eyes as we drive! The ads on “free versions” of Internet radio interrupt our music filling our heads with “offers and specials” Peyton Manning humming the Nationwide jingle is still stick in my head!
We experience the same type of distractions with our Spiritual walk with Jesus. Worldly clamors distract us trying to allow fear, worry, and pride to fuel our self-centered minds away from seeking and doing God’s will. How many times daily are your good thoughts challenged with earthly interruptions? Check your experience…
“His presence had been blotted out by worldly clamors, mostly those within myself.” Big Book pg 12-13
Lord please let us focus on your love and will for us despite all of the earthly distractions around us, AMEN.
“The seed that fell among the thorny weeds is like those who hear God’s teaching, but they let the worries, riches, and pleasures of this life keep them from growing and producing good fruit.” Luke 8:14
Have a blessed day y’all!
