Seven-Day Distraction Fast – Day #5

By Dr. Scott Rodin    

Unexpected and unwelcome intruders of peace

What did you hear God say to you on Day #4? Did you find new time to spend with Him? Was your heart more at peace?

There is more than noise that distracts us. I’m being reminded that grief and sadness are powerful distractors. I’m experiencing both this week, they are unexpected players, unwelcome intruders in this week of planned solace with God.

It reminds me of how many ways life can compete with the simple desire to be alone and quiet in God’s presence. Perhaps you are experiencing some unwelcome intruder yelling into your week of quiet and listening. If so, write me and tell me how God is speaking to you in spite of it. I’m all ears.
