The little foxes…spoil the vines. Song of Songs 2:15
Often it is the small things that cause us to get off course and lose focus. The little irritations we experience, meditating on negative comments people make, and even excessive use of things such as social media. Essentially, keeping our eyes on anything but Christ can become an unnecessary distraction that seeks to derail us from being productive and God’s purpose for our life. The good news is that the Lord has given us the ability to focus on Him by the grace of God! Hebrews 12:2 states, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” Jesus is the Word (John 1:14), and staying focused on God’s Word brings a sense of peace and direction for our lives! Despite the distractions that may come, also know that “he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). Even though distractions may momentarily present themselves, ultimately, God’s purpose and plan for our life will always prevail! Don’t be discouraged feeling like you have wasted time due to distractions because God’s plan for your life will go forth!
