All afternoon i have been sitting on a hard chair in a noisy environment, but for some reason i work best this way. Why is it that when you need to get stuff done you need to go to a place where there potentially could be distractions all around? I don't fall asleep, look in the fridge or even go on facebook and check out the latest wall post from people who like me are on there to much. I love the feeling of simply getting out of the house and thinking. even though this post isn't important or full of meaning full thoughts, they are thoughts none the less. It is good to simply sit down and reflect on how you are spending your days, you can come to some great conclusions this way. For instence i came to the conclusion today that i was spending to much time doing things that simply waste my time. An example of this is farmville, a facebook game devoted to wasting your time.. i wonder how much more we could accomplish without different distractions like this to fill up our day? Then i think i wonder how many times have i neglected to spend time with God due to these destractions. I looked up the definition of disctraction and it was more acurate then i would have thought, "Extreme mental or emotional disturbance; obsession".. Obsession.. hmmm interesting; Or "an interruption; an obstacle to concentration". I like this one. It is a common thing that probably 99% of the world face. I guess my question would be, "What are the things that distract us from spending our time with God?" Everyone can say that there is an obstacle to our concentraton of God our father at times, but i know that personally instead of knowing the obstacle and figuring a way to get around it, dig down and remove the obstacle all together. I guess sitting and thinking does produce some internal thoughts after all. I hope this provokes some thoughts regarding obcticles of distraction that hinder us from spending time with Christ.
