God Didn’t Lose Out, I Did…

 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Psalm 96:5

I was praying today and got side-tracked. I was thinking about how quickly the ink gets used up out of the printer cartridges for the new printer that we purchased. After that, I prayed to God saying that I was sorry, because He just lost ten minutes of time with me due to my being distracted. Then it dawned on me, God didn’t lose out, I did.

I allowed something worldly to interfere with the time I have devoted to my daily prayer. Evert morning prayer sets the foundation for the rest of my day. I lost out of this time of being in relationship with my Savior. Will God forgive me for this? Sure He will, but can I forgive myself for letting things of this world interfere?

I commonly allow distractions and stressful situations to overpower my prayer time and I lose out every time, because I depend on the peace that only Christ can give me to get me through the events of the day and to calm me when I’m stressed.

I realized while I was praying about this, that these distractions are an even bigger vice than my overeating ever was. I hadn’t really thought of it that way before. Since God has blessed me by healing my overeating, I need to start turning my distractibility over into His capable hands, as well. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Psalm 96:5

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
