What causes you to be distracted? Luke 10:40

Good morning everyone,
The more you stay busy being busy, you may just plain miss the reason why you should be busy!  You get a lot accomplished, but for who are you getting it accomplished?  Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the things that you need to get done throughout the course of the day?  Luke 10:40 says, but Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.  She came to Him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself?  Tell her to help me!"  See Martha was too busy preparing for the Lord being in her house rather than sitting at His feet listening to Him about more important stuff like Mary did.  Do you ever do that?  Lord, how come so and so has it so easy and they never serve You and yet I serve You faithfully and it is still a real struggle financially, spiritually, emotionally or you can put in your own reason.  See the real reason to serve is not based on what others do or what they receive.  It should be about you serving in a way so that you serve with an attitude of praise and not one that is soured.  If it has become soured, maybe it is time to sweeten it up!  Psalm 119 starts by telling us that we should walk in a way that is blameless and we should keep His testimonies.  Verse 57 tells us that the Lord is our portion and the good portion is one thing that God will not take away from us as believers!  If you seek Him with your whole heart, you will not go wrong!  You may have even gotten to a point in life where you feel as though He doesn't care? Remember that He cares, but it might be in a different way than you think.  We ask Him for success, but are we willing to manage our success in ways that will be pleasing to Him?  Distractions come in all shapes and sizes and unless we know Him intimately, how can we keep from running down paths that lead no where?  Give Him time and before you know it, you will have time that you never knew existed!  Ask Jesus to remove from your plate those things that don't really matter so that you can replace it with 'facetime' for the Savior!
Your brother in Christ,
