Thought for today

Ladies in Sunday School class this is mainly for you because we have talked about it so much.  It is taken from "Jesus Calling".  I thought it might make you smile like it did me.  I really wanted to text it to y'all but well it is just a bit too long.  So here goes:

"Do not be discouraged by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me.  I know that your heart's desire is to be aware of My Presence continually.  This is a lofty goal:  you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life.  Don't let feelings of failure weigh you down.  Instead, try to see yourself as I see you.  First of all, I am delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with Me through your life.  I am pleased each time you initiate communication with Me.  In addition, I notice the progress you have made since you first resolved to live in My Presence. 
When you realize that your mind has wandered away from Me, don't be alarmed or surprised.  You live in a world that has been rigged to distract you.  Each time you plow your way through the massive distractions to communicate with Me, you achieve a victory.  Rejoice in these tiny triumphs,  and they will increasingly light up your days."  Romans 8:33;  Hebrews 4:14-16

What do ya say girls?  Let's keep on plowing.  Daddy is proud when we do.
