I can be so distracted.  Wondering what will happen, waiting for God’s answers to my prayers.  I know He will answer but in the meantime, I can be so distracted.  Another word for this would be that I am impatient.  This impatience not only hurts my relationship with my Father in heaven but with my family on this earth.  When I am distracted and impatient, living in the here and now is difficult.   I still make meals and clean up, teach school, give baths, do laundry, even do Bible time and pray, still I can be emotionally absent or seriously distracted emotionally.

God seems to have a simple albeit challenging solution to this problem.  Be still and know He is God.  Wait on him.  Trust Him with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding.

Lord, today in the midst of even business, help me to be still and know You are God, know that You love me, know that You hear me.
