God Blessed Morning Family!
When we are on the right path we should not be discouraged when we encounter roadblocks and detours for they only serve as distractions. As we move through this journey there are times when we become unconscious about what is going on around us because we are so focused on obtaining our goals, but then we encounter the unexpected hiccup and it throws us off course. This distraction is not to be seen as a bad thing but as a reminder that this journey is not traveled alone. For when things are going good we tend to forget to be thankful for our blessings. We also find that when we do not experience any discomfort along the way we tend to think that we are successful because of our actions and not those of the Lord our God. Be joyful when you encounter distractions for they serve as reminders that we cannot overcome them or achieve anything without His Grace. For distractions not only bring us to the awareness of His presence they also teach us to be patient and to realize that at some point we must let go if we want to move ahead, for there are some roads in which we cannot travel unless He is present to carry us over troubled waters. "And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction." 1 Corinthians 7:35 Focus upon the Lord and you will not see distractions upon your horizon for they are a symbol of what He can and will do for you for He will move mountains out of your way. Rejoyce when you encounter a distraction for they serve to tell you God is present and you are about to witness His Power over all things. Be Still And Know That I Am. Aman. Hallelujah.
