3 kings

I wonder if the wise men ever got distracted in their long, long journey.  Distracted by people they met, camel “break downs,” hunger, fatigue.

I wonder if they ever talked about turning around as they trudged along day after day night after night…sandy,  hot, thirsty…

I wonder if the Star ever faded behind clouds and caused them to lose hope.

I am far from a “wise man.”  However, I am a woman who is trying my best to stay focused on the One to whom all my gifts and passions belong.

But, shew!

I feel distracted.

A long list of “things to do” combined with the little things that just “pop up” and require my attention are keeping from Him.

Forgive me, Lord, when this world clouds my view of Your Glory with its day-to-day demands.

Help me to keep looking up…….trusting that in the end my journey will bring me to my knees in front of You.

Determined to Seek Him in spite of myself,
