The scripture for today, April 25 (4/25), is Proverbs 4:25 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
There are a lot of interesting and fun distractions in life, so we have to remind ourselves over and over what is most important to us. We have only so much time in a day and in a lifetime. We can run back and forth from one sideroad to another; one fun thing to another, one power thing to another, one great–looking thing to another.
Before we know it, we have been on that side road a long time. Too long actually. We can barely see the main road we were on before. And God? He is now so far away. How can that be? We were always told God would always be there for us.
But God pretty much treats us the way we treat him. If we don’t like being around him, he doesn’t much like being around us. If we don’t like listening to his word (the Bible), he doesn’t much like listening to our word (prayer). If we don’t like to spend special time with him, he doesn’t much like to spend special time with us. God gives us the same courtesy we give him. God will not force himself on us, for he is a Gentleman.
So what do you have in your sights to do today? Next year? The rest of your life? What road are you on? Where is it leading you? Is that what you really want?

One thought on “Wednesday 4/25 ~ Have you been distracted lately?”
As I continue my journey with the Lord, I will always be eternally grateful for your mentoring and help as a new believer. Your encouragement and teaching helped me open the door for Jesus who was knocking. Sometimes the people we encourage go on their way and we never know what happened to them. I wanted to reach out to let you know how much you touched me and how close to the Lord I am now! I’m forever grateful!
