How to overcome the distractions and turn your thoughts to God
Returning to routine after the craziness of the New Year can make life feel normal again. However, schedules quickly fill with the kids’ sports games, church functions and enough work from the office to keep you busy all evening.
Suddenly, you barely have time to catch your breath.
Falling into a routine of busyness can leave you feeling stressed and pulled in a hundred different directions. When frustration and exhaustion take over during this season, how do you search for the blessings each day?
Finding blessings in the midst of balancing everything on the schedule can almost feel like another task on the to do list. Today’s society screams instant gratification and throws guilt our way when we try to relax from work. It can feel as if the busyness of each day holds nothing but assignments to complete and no time to even think about anything else.
Blessings, however, come in all different forms. Sometimes you don’t have to search for them, you just have to be willing to look in the right direction.
God is always providing ways for you to feel refreshed. Don’t allow life to get so busy that you miss out on these blessings. The busyness we endure not only distracts us from our families, friends, church community and neighborhood, but it ultimately distracts us from our relationship with Jesus.
Starting today, make it a point to find the blessings in your life. When stress takes over, step back, take a breath and turn your thoughts to Christ, the only one who can bring you through this season of busyness.
