Distractions can negatively affect our lives and keep us off balance. Untold numbers of people, Christians included, go through life controlled by distractions—texts, emails, meetings, phone calls, errands, and surfing the internet. They bounce frantically from one activity to the next. Their goals and priorities take a backseat to an artificial tyranny of the urgent. Everything seems important. Ironically, they find enough time for distractions, but not enough time to restore their life’s equilibrium with a few minutes reading God’s Word and praying.
All of us have fears. But we don’t have to allow these fears to become life-controlling giants. Make up your mind to deal with them. Select one of the fears that’s really bothering you and take action to defeat it. As you have success by conquering one fear, you’ll start building confidence and momentum to deal with the next fear.
