How can we focus more on Christ?
The first thing I learned in health coaching school was we must clear the clutter before making changes in our lives. The old sofa must come out of the living room before the new sofa has a place to reside.
Lately, I have been feeling like clutter is all around me. My home is full. There are Christmas presents everywhere, furniture I need to get rid of, and a spare bedroom that I literally cannot walk-in right now. Mentally I am cluttered. There’s a lot on the calendar, it’s year end as an accountant, and there’s so much on my mind I want to write and share.
I need to eliminate the distractions and organize that clutter so I can go and do the things that bring me closer to Christ. But first, I need to pray for help. 😊 Seek Him in all things, Right? Then I am going to tackle the cluttered house and get all the mental things sorted and organized on my planner and calendar.
What about other distractions like our phones? Our phone will tell us how many hours and what apps we used each month. That can be an eye opener. Do we need to limit our screen time? Is our phone a distraction in our quest to get closer to Christ?
What about habits or parts of our daily routine that need to be eliminated? Is there any part of our day where we may be wasting too much time?
Let’s take time today to think about the distractions in our life. God gives us just enough time each day to do the things we are called to do. Are we focusing on God’s list or our own?
