How many times do you go about your daily routine, doing what you need to do, but thoughts are constantly going through your head? You can’t seem to focus on one thing at a time because of everything else going on in there. Whether it’s people, things you have to do, something you did and now regret, or what you want to tell somebody. It’s like my thought process is never ending!
Here I am, trying to fold clothes, while my mind is thinking, “I wonder what David will want for supper? What do I need to make? Did I tell Josie what she is supposed to do after school? Do I have something else to do today/tonight that I forgot about? I can’t believe what happened the other day! Why did they say that about me?”
Have you noticed that it gets worse when you are trying to pray or study? That’s when the phone will ring. You will suddenly remember what it was that you forgot to do. Everyone needs something at one time.
Our focus becomes muddled with everyday distractions. Not because we want it to, but because we are used to it and continue to allow it. We become subjected to our thoughts instead of our thoughts being under subjection to us. God wants us in unity with Him when it comes to prayer time. I understand all too well how hard that can be.
So I leave you with this encouragement, to strive to get one on One with God today. Somehow, somewhere. To forget about everything else as you submit yourself to Him. It’s your day of refreshing!
