Distractions: Removing…Time For Productivity

Distractions: Removing...Time For ProductivityElijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. (James 5:17 NIV)


Distractions, distractions…leading to dissatisfaction, changes must come true! Gracious, I could be writing a musical tune. 🙂 At the end of a day, we measure success and frown upon distractions weighing us down. When basically it all has to do with our attitude, guided by what is determined in our minds to accomplish and what to avoid. Earlier yesterday, I sat down to pray and with Lord, help me, He had my mind clicking.


A little fun there with a serious topic- distractions. How do we deal with them? We deal with…eliminating the impact distractions have on our productivity. We must purge any/every distraction- not happy with weight/health…purge various foods, gaining control over weight issues. Is time an issue? What causes us from using time most efficient- purge, purge, purge. As we purge distractions- spouses and children are not included, we must begin to earnestly pray. While praying, God will bring to mind areas that are distracting and give a plan to activate better structure. Opposite of this are individuals who are too focused, needing time to relax. He will be faithful here, too. With God, there is a balance that promotes life to the fullest.

Point of Understanding

James reminded…Elijah was just like us- difference may be, he earnestly prayed. The process in our spiritual journeys comes to the point of understanding we no longer live by world standards when confessing Jesus is our Savior. With forgiveness of sins, we’ve confessed stating before the Lord our knowledge of wrong doing. He forgives and we move forward. Sin keeps us bound, forgiveness frees to gain more knowledge, understanding, and wisdom as we keep seeking Jesus. Nothing more than the devil wanting to distract keeping us stumped, unproductive in serving God’s purpose. In perfect alignment with God’s purpose, as we pray, doors open to unimaginable task bringing the greatest joy, pure peace. Therefore, peace and joy trumps distractions and dissatisfaction. Changes will come true.

Be encouraged!
