Distractions- Day 4 August 14, 2019 08:54 1 Comment

 

That first breath of outdoor air is like salve to my soul.

Got halfway down the driveway and Murph stopped dead in his tracks. "I don't want to go, he said to me with my eyes. So we turned around and I put him in the house. "I know the feeling some days Murph, I told him.  I think he regretted it because Burly told me he cried for ten minutes after I left. A walk with your master always a good thing but the memory fades of it's benefit so easily. So much to distract us from it's greatness and power. 

So much to distract me on my healing mile this morning -a zealous farmer on his rickety tractor harvesting the wheat- small airplanes- the loud ones, overhead-chipmunks screeching-a Harley Davidson convoy- all good sounds of summer but so distracting nonetheless.

Distractions are inevitable but learning to allow the voice of the Spirit to be louder in my life than those things that take me away from Him is where I want to live. 

 

No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this,
Never so much as imagined anything quite like it—
What God has arranged for those who love him.

But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you.

1 Corinthians 2:9

"Make time for the quiet moments, as God whispers and the world is loud."
