My dog is a mix of several different breeds, but a trait associated with one of the breeds is that he is "not easily disengaged." He is a great dog, but it is hard to break his "focus" on something that catches his attention. Whether we realize it or not, there may be times in our lives when we are not easily disengaged, but we need to be sure we are engaged with the correct things in our lives!
Sometimes in life, we get "tunnel vision" and become focused on something or some way of doing things. When we forget to seek God, it can be reassuring to know that He is there for us. We just need to stop, look, and listen. When we take the time to stop and seek God, we can see Him revealing Himself and calling to us. We can then respond to God's call and follow Him!
When God reminds us that He is near, we need to respond and be ready to follow Him!
Thank You for reminding me that You are near and for calling on me. Help me to follow You and Your will for my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
