"Am I easily distracted again Am I a slave to things that don't matter at all?" - Isla Vista Worship
I find [renewed every morning] myself at the thought that I am so easily distracted.
Easily distracted from what I ought to do
so easily distracted from things of my own devicet
trying to squeeze in multiple connections and attentions over prioritizing presence
[Choosing to] distracting myself in the things that don’t matter at all.
I want to stay present. Maintain presence
For the ones I love
For the God I love
For the work I love
For this life I love – the me I love.
So lord, help me.
I thank you for your guidance over me with this particular weakness of being prone to wander out of presence and real connection and joy of living… and that you are so gentle about it as you do it. It seems I discover more and more as I study your word and seek a relationship with you that you are such a God filled with grace, mercy, and gentleness.
Your heart lies in our best interests. If only we were wise enough to accept that that is what you desire in equal and greater strength to ours.
Things that I have not known, or rather, really known (accepting and believing in mind, body, and soul) before.
God, you are so good.
