You don't have to have perfect vision or hearing to be distracted by the world. Laying in bed in the early morning taking in all the peacefulness of spring; the birds chirping and the vibrant green leaves is easily interrupted by passing traffic and the vibration of my phone with coworkers whom have chosen to work a Saturday needing my assistance. Should the cars all stop their travels so I can relax, of course not, should I ignore my teammates so I can focus, not when the answer they need is a simple quick response, and necessary to their productivity today.

    Distractions come easily and in many forms, they can interrupt our quiet time with God and skew our vision of things God is trying to tell us. Distractions can cause confusion when you're unsure of that you thought you heard or saw. When distractions come our way we must continue to strengthen our relationship with Jesus so that he can clear up any confusion that has come against us. To the best of your ability, drown out the distractions or quickly attend to what is necessary and get back to time with God, it will be worth it in the end to re-center your thoughts on the Lord!

"Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely." 1 Corinthians 13:12 NLT
