After hearing one of my recent talks about living an undistracted life, a woman asked me, “How do I know if I am living distracted?” She wasn’t sure. And she’s not alone. Many women today are asking a similar question. In my case, mine wasn’t a question. Mine was a statement, “I am living distracted.” Because I already knew I was. It was very clear to me, but I just hadn’t named it as such. Because once I named it, I knew I’d have to address it. Until the day when I missed an important moment that happened right in front of me. I knew then I needed to make a change.
Maybe you know you need to make a change, too.
Or maybe you don’t, but you feel like something’s not quite right in your life. You feel something is missing, or out of place, or that you’re not living life the way you were designed to.
The things is, some of us have been living distracted for so long, that it’s all we know and it’s just what we do. It has become our way of life, and it’s how we live our days. We may not name it “living distracted,” but might think something along the lines of, “This is my life, and I can’t do anything about it.” Let me tell you today, nothing could be farther from the truth. Life does not have to be this way, and we CAN do something about it. We DO NOT have to live this life distracted. In fact, God did not design us to live our lives this way. He desires us to be focused, alert, and sober-minded. He desires His good for our lives, and living distracted certainly does not come from Him.
I share a Bible verse that reminds us of how our spiritual enemy likes to use distractions against us, yet also a promise of Jesus tucked in that same verse.
Like the woman who asked that question that day, are you asking the same?
“How do I know if I am living distracted?”
In Chapter 2 of my new book, Right Now Matters: Empowering Right-Now Women in a Culture of Distraction, I share five indications or clues that help us decipher and answer this question, and I share them in this episode as well. They are vital to stepping into an undistracted life!
