That was my mind during what was supposed to be my quiet time with Jesus. Although the house was still, full of sleeping kiddos and a snoring dog, my brain was all over the place.
Softball, groceries, work, valentine boxes, laundry, lunches, etc. All of these things (plus more) were vying for a first place spot in my mind.
When you have big prayers, when you need God to move, you better bet your bottom dollar that distractions are coming your way.
You better know that you are about to fight a crowd [in your mind] to get to where you need to be.
I had to intentionally push past all of my thoughts, all of the distractions, so I could touch the hem of His garment. And it wasn’t easy because the thought pollution in my brain was definitely taking over what needed to be my focus.
I urge you to fight through the crowd of distractions today. Reach out and take hold of the victory that you are claiming for your family and friends. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from touching the hem of His garment.
“30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ”
32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” – Mark 5:30-34
