So many distractions Now I admit, there are days when I forget all this invisible stuff is real, and pleasing God is far from my thoughts. On these days I end up just chasing whatever seems to feel right in the moment. I seek happiness through friends, food, my kids, the approval of people, wasting minutes on Facebook, or catching up on TV shows. There are unending distractions to chase. As a result I end up exhausted and frustrated with my life and with God. In those moments I know in my heart that I would like to please God, but my head tells me that it would take a lot of effort to do that. The more I understand what God has done, the more I quit striving and simply rest in Him.
