It's under my feet

Purity of Mind: Day 17 - Sweet Surrender

Psalm 146:3-5
Don't put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there.  When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them.  But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. 

I am not really sure what I wanted this blog to look like, I don't think its quite there yet, so bare with me.  I think its hard to talk/reflect on what I have read with the blogging community if you aren't reading the book at the same time.  I guess, I also don't want to just regurgitate what I just read coz whats the point in that... so I am not really sure what the plan is, I just thought I would let you know my predicament. 

Anyway, after a my last blog when I was super pumped and hungry, not much has changed, I am still hungry but I haven't really done anything about it...enter new blog (a week later) which suggests that that some of the biggest spiritual warfare weapons facing us today are 'distraction, discouragement and discontent' and I think that this week I have let the devil walk all over me with the first D.  Seriously, that's all it took, this week I have been distracted but lots of little things, but all of them have meant that I haven't been putting God first.  I think I need to wake up a little to the fact that distraction isn't just something that happens, but that it can be actively used against me in my efforts to get closer to the king...So right here and right now I am putting a stop to it.  Distraction is under my feet, and it won't stop me from doing my devotions anymore...

Is McLeods Daughtets part of your distaction. I think you need to never watch it again. So I never have to watch it again.
Also I think that although you haven't quite figured out the blog it is still super important you do it every night so you stay accountable. Even if it makes Bo sence to anyone other than god and you it is worth it
