God Blessed Morning Family!
When we lose focus on our goals it is said that we are distracted, but when we lose focus on God it is said that Life got in the way. In some point this is true for there are negative forces which attempt to distract us from our connection with God. Most think that it is attempting to keep us from our destiny but this is impossible for our destiny is written, what it is attempting to do is keep us distracted so that we don't enjoy the blessings God has bestowed upon us. Depression is a distraction in which we find ourselves in a dark place not enjoying our environment nor our natural God given talents. When depression invades your Life you will find that you no longer have an appetite for the enjoyment of Life. This is a major distraction, but there are some minor distractions which occur on a daily basis such as road-rage, one minute you are driving along fine and the next minute someone might cut you off in traffic and because you almost collided into them you become enraged out of fear that you could have had an accident. In an instant your joy is removed and replaced with anger that occurred out of fear of something that did not occur. This is a minor distraction that removes you from your focus on not only the Word of God but also your connection with God. Don't allow distractions to control your emotions, thoughts, actions or reactions, "Set your minds on things that are above, not on the things that are on earth." Colossians 3:2. Focus on God and the abundance of Love He constantly showers upon you and the negative distractions will fade away as quickly as they occur. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
