Do you struggle with distractions, detours, and derailments in life? Guess what? Me too.
Day in and day out, I delay the calling of what God places in my life. I get so frustrated with myself, and disappointment settles in. I fail to remember or to live out the truth that through Christ, I can do all things because of His strength.
Why do I waltz with daily distraction? Why do I settle with halfway instead of the fullness of God?
That nasty, nasty fear freezes me and allows distractions and delays to flow into my life, keeping me from doing what I know I should be doing over and over again.
Sisters, has the battle of defeat caused distractions in your life? What is at the forefront of your path instead of His freedom and purpose?
There are times we allow distractions to dictate our direction and allow them to become our boss.
So how can we combat the battle of defeat that comes from our distractions?
We focus on the eyes of Jesus, so He can direct our day to day steps.It isn't about striving for more; it is about obedience in doing the task God asks you to do with Him. Click To Tweet
Remember, the Holy Spirit will equip you for everything God asks you to each day.

Oh, friends, I want to live a Jesus-infused life. How about you?
What is a Jesus-infused life? Here are a few things I do to help me stay infused with Jesus and to set my gaze on Him:
- Seek God first each morning and ask Him what your assignment is for the day. God will pour out His passions as you pursue His steps through your calling.
- Read God’s truth out loud. Allow it to permeate your heart. Reset your heart daily.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to give you His courage and boldness for whatever comes your way.
- Turn your eyes upon Jesus, really. He will never steer you the wrong way.
- Remember, you are a child of God. Like the judge, Deborah, you are a warrior-woman, and the Holy Spirit gives you exactly what you need to stay focused and to move past distractions.
Sisters, God invites us to live the fullness of the beautiful plans He designed for each of us. If we are so distracted, we will miss out on His purpose. For me, I want to serve the Lord, and my guess is you do too. Let’s. Do. This!
