Distractions

January 7, 2015

Colossians 3:3-4
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4When Christ, who is youra life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Distractions

A young lady knelt beside her bed one morning to pray.
The warm sun breaking in caused her eye to stray.
As she glimpsed up and saw a song bird in the tree,
And was attracted to the window as she rose from bended knee.

Her thoughts became distracted as she looked out upon the day,
The woods, the leaves, the crags all beckoned her to come and play.
There she left Jesus sitting as she dressed and fled her room.
Later, she thought, I will return and then my prayers resume.

Why not invite Jesus with you as you engage upon your day?
Maybe He would love running with you as you run and play.
Why do we confine Him to when we are on bended knee?
Carry Jesus with you and allow Him to be free.

Should He not be with you in every expression of your day?
Do not be distracted, but take Him with you, even when you play.
He is your closest friend and loves to spend His time with you,
So take His presence with you in all that you say and do.

Do return to take time with Him in the solace of your room.
You need the quite time with Him your conversation to resume.
Allow Him to order your steps as you step into your day,
But always take Him with you and never cease to pray.
