Clearing the Distractions

"All I want is for you to be able to develop 
a way of life in which you can spend 
plenty of time together with the Master 
without a lot of distractions."

1 Corinthians 7:17 msg

Time with You.

Precious moments in the quiet.

You long for me to come away,
to sit with You, 
to pour out my heart to You.

What a gift — these times
alone with You.

As I seek You in the quiet,
I find You waiting, 
ready to meet me just as I am.

You reveal Yourself to me,
You speak Words of Life to my heart,
You lift my head and place a new song on my lips.

Remove that which distracts,
the unnecessary, the noisy clamor —
replace it with You.

"I do want to point out, friends, 
that time is of the essence. 
There is no time to waste, 
so don't complicate your lives unnecessarily.
Keep it simple."

1 Corinthians 7:29 msg

"And don't be wishing you were someplace else
or with someone else. Where you are right now 
is God's place for you.
Live and obey and love and believe right there.
God, not your marital status, defines your life."

1 Corinthians 7:17 msg
