Do you long for a new beginning? A fresh start? Sometimes we think we are doing just fine and walking with The Lord, when all of a sudden something comes along and smacks you in the face. You wake up from your daily life and realize something has just got to change! You work at it and work at it, but all you want to do is give up because you are just going in circles. Take heart my friends! There is a solution! Sometimes there are things that are blocking us from being truly with The Lord. Things such as activities, music, movies. Basically anything. You may think of some of these things as entertainment rather than distractions. And you could be doing it for entertainment, however it could be distracting you without you noticing. Things like addicting t.v. series, or some music that may not be the best to listen to but has an awesome beat to it. To be fully with The Lord you may have to give up some of these things. But don’t worry because it’a all worth it in the end. You might be thinking “well how am I just supposed to stop listening to this music or stop watching this show when it’s getting so interesting?” I never said it would be easy. A good friend of mine once said “anything worth it is not going to be easy”. And yes this is worth it! Not only that, but God is going to be there every step of the way holding your hand and helping you through it. You’re going to have rough days you’re going to have temptations, especially when you get closer to God. God will always provide an out to your temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). Do not fear and do not worry. Sometimes you have to make a sacrifice, just like God made for us. Pray and ask God to show you the distractions in your life that are keeping you from following the Lords path completely and fully.
