Distractions. They can happen so easily. While I have been working on this, I have made a Bible Club note, talked to Mark about Facebook Live, and looked on-line for a Christmas gift. Also I can't forget about the trip to the post office to pick up a package. I am kind of like the dogs in the movie "UP" - squirrel!
With the Christmas season officially underway it is even easier to become distracted. There are Christmas Parties and Christmas programs. There is getting thing ready for family coming in or getting things ready to leave. There is putting up decorations and ... well the list goes on.
Now don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, along with 4th of July, it is my favorite holiday. I love the food, the time with family, the movies, and the music. But what what I love most is that Christ Jesus came down to earth to mend our broken relationship with Him.How awesome is that?
But distractions happen, I know. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." Luke 10:40-42
So stop, take a breath, hide out if you have to. No distractions - just you and God. And then maybe just maybe you'll remember from whom all your blessings flow.
