Sidetracked and Distracted

Sidetracked and distracted

Lord, I got sidetracked and distracted again. Also it seems I pray the same prayers and sing the same songs over and over. Meanwhile, I’m working so hard to get all this “to do” list done. But I can’t seem to finish it. Help me find Your will.

Meanwhile I’ve tried to work this program successfully. But occasionally, I messed up and fell on my face. Sometimes I fell in the feeding trough, only to emerge bloated and defeated. Help me find Your will.

Lord, it seems like it’s been a long time since I was overwhelmed by Your Presence. I’ve left You out, because everything else has me sidetracked and distracted.

Can You help me overcome this confusion and live a victorious life, full of Your Presence with joy and peace? Lord, I have no answers. And it seems I’m always busy, too busy for any joy in my life.Just Enjoy My Presence

My Child, seek My voice. Seek My Presence for I am your answer. No program can replace My power in your life. But as you come to Me, I will help you. Because it’s always been My intent to give you victory.

Child, I want you totally dependent on Me. Surrender your will and allow Me to guide your every step, your every word, and your every bite. Therein, you will have your victory.

Lord, I have so many dreams, thoughts, and plans. Because I get sidetracked and distracted, none are completed. I just go through my day busy as I can be. So busy, busy all the time. How can I get it all done?

First of all, My Child, focus on Me, seek My voice and seek My will for every moment of your day. Remember when you used to focus on My Presence even when you were in meetings. I was always there by your side. You knew I was with you then.

 Your plans are of no avail, just busy work. You’ve been running and running through your life. I’ve been calling on your heart. But you’ve focused more on your “to do” list versus seeking My Presence.

Oh Lord, please forgive me. In the evenings, exhaustion comes. Then I forget Your words of victory. So it’s easy to slip into my old habits of snacking until I fall asleep in my chair. Sidetracked and distracted

Child, know I am with you. I will lead you as you surrender to Me your life and your will. As you seek Me, I will lead you one day at a time, one moment at a time. When you are weak and tired, go to bed. Before you close your eyes, praise Me for your victories.

My Child, My plans for you are victory. They are not for your busyness. In fact, it is in your returning and resting in My Presence that will bring your victory over all.

Feed On This

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” . . . Isaiah 30:16 NKJV

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says r back from your captivity. . . . Jeremiah 29: 11-14 NKJV

Be strong in the Lord
There are no perfect people, but God has already planned for your victory.

Surrender Is The Key

Surrender is the key to victory and prosperity.

Surrender is the key to victory.
Surrender is the key to victory.

Child, surrender is the key to victory and prosperity.  As you surrender yourself, your heart, your dreams, and your desires I will bless you.

Lord, I don’t know what to write.

Child, I’ll give you the words to speak, but first you must surrender all.  You must feed yourself . Before you can help others, you must first feed yourself My Word and My Presence first. 

Yes Sir.

Just as on a plane, the parent should put on their oxygen mask first. Then put the mask on the child next. So feed yourself and take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit.

Surrender is the key.
Because of Me, your victory is assured.

Take in the breathe of My Holy Spirit, My Presence first, and before all else. Then you can help others.

Feed on My Word and My Presence. Then you will receive power to defeat your enemies, especially your greatest enemy, Satan.

After all, his desire is to keep you defeated and discouraged. So feed on My Word and My Presence, My Holy Spirit, therein you will find power. 

Now Child, clean up your own backyard, your eating habits, your heart, and your attitudes. Quit worrying about the future. Take one day at a time, one day.

Make it your goal to seek My will and then follow My will. For what good is it if you ask for advice and then never follow it? 

So your focus should be surrender first. Then look to Me for your instructions. Next, follow how I lead you. Surrender is the key to your victory and a successful life of victory.

  1. Surrender.
  2. Look to Me and listen for instructions.
  3. Follow, trust, and obey how I lead you.

Your job is not a quota. Your job is surrender. That’s your focus, surrender, the first key to unlock your victory. 

Yes Sir.

Child, keep your eyes on Me and your heart surrendered to me. Let go of all that is in your hand. Then open your hand to receive what I have for you. It’s beyond your expectation. Keep your eyes on Me.

Child, as you surrender to My will (especially your food), I will make you stronger. As you let go, I will increase your strength. Now let go. 

Yes Sir. Surrender is the key.

Let go of it all and come before Me, completely surrendered and empty of all that clutters your heart, and your mind. Allow Me to fill you with Myself. 

Quit wishing for more time and accomplish what I tell you to do, in the time I give you. I will give you all the time you need to accomplish all, all the tasks I assign you. 

Seek My will each day. Then watch and see what I will do with your time. I can multiply it. 

Your key to success is surrender. So therefore, surrender your self and all you are, all your dreams, desires, and wishes. Surrender your all to Me. Then watch and see what I do. 

So quit trying to figure everything out. Just focus on surrender, As you take each step in surrender, I will lead you to your own personal victory. 

Child, quit trying on your own. Give it all to Me.

Yes sir. Lord, take it. Take me. I give myself to thee. Do with me as your wish.

Child, do not fear for I am with you

Surrender is the Key

Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always. Psalms 105:4 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
