Give Me Respite

Forgive my incessant ability to get distracted. Distracted by my email. Distracted by social media. Distracted by my comfort. Distracted by my self promotion. Distracted by my ME. Give me respite from this world and all the distractions it has in it’s arsenal against me connecting with You. My connection to You and with You is for You and for me to help me release the distractions of this world. You are my respite. Give me You!

I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. (Psalm 32:5, ESV)

Quote of the Day ~ Francis Chan on God’s Call

“It is true that God may have called you to be exactly where you are. But, it is absolutely vital to grasp that he didn’t call you there so you could settle in and live your life in comfort and superficial peace.”
― Francis Chan, Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit
