Detours Before the Destination

“By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.”   -Christopher Columbus

What on earth distracts you from your Heavenly Father?  For me it’s my to-do list, email, facebook, phone, thoughts about the past and future, and the list goes on.  In and of themselves these items are not wrong, but if by any means these detour us from reaching God in the present moment, we miss our destination, or rather we arrive later than we ought.   

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer  (Psalm 19:14, ESV).
