There... plugged in and ready to go. However, while I was getting my cord & plugging in I realized I only have a short amount of time to post my thoughts (not usually a short task), iron a shirt for my husband, throw some fruit in my lunch bag for work, put makeup on and leave for work! ACK! Not enough time!
So many times I think I could stay up all night and still not have enough time to get everything done! I try to be focused at work, at home, in my devotions, and even with my family but I'm seeing that there are so many distractions that get in my way. And then again there are times when I get so focused on things I'm working on that the more important things appear as distractions & I get frustrated!
Lord, all this to say... focus my thoughts on You today. Show me what's important and what isn't. Show me when to pause & listen and show me when to focus...
Lord, I desire that You would be my main focus. That You & Your plans for me would be the most important thing I focus on. You know me better than anyone and I know you have good plans for me. I don't want to get distracted from the path You have laid out before me. Show me where You want me. Show me what You want me to do. Show me when to stop and talk to someone or just listen to what they have to say. Help me be more like You... undistracted, unhurried, intentional about people, peaceful and focused on the Father's plan.
Take my day and lead me to make choices that honor You and please You. Take this day and order my steps, my thoughts & my words. May You be my primary focus.
