This world is full of distractions. Whether we realize it or not, we are being plagued by the television, computer, and other electronics.
As I step back and look at my life the past couple years, I realize that this technology has taken a big place in my life. First, I joined it all to connect to other people; but then I just found myself using this technology exorbitantly. Though not necessarily bad, this lifestyle has left me a lot less productive.
When I was a kid, I had no distractions; I had no hidden motives. Everything was simple. Pure. Exciting. What has changed as I’ve gotten older? It has to be the distractions. The only way to pursue those aspirations and goals that I haven’t had time for before is to get away from those things that pull me away from what God wants me to do. I need to be like a child, giving all my attention to one thing at a time and enjoying the moment.
From now on, I’m going to try harder to be more childlike. To have undivided focus on what God wants.
