Cannot See for the Trees

We have been working the past few weeks to clear young trees from a portion of our farm. Once they are cut, we section then stack them for drying and use in the wood cook stove. When we walked back to our house we were astounded by the beautiful view of the mountains that was previously obscured by the trees.

Those young trees that had sprouted are akin to the many distractions we face daily and prevent us from seeing Jesus. If we stop and clear away the distractions periodically we do not lose sight of our Lord. We must keep ourselves cleared of distractions so our harvest and labor will be fruitful for Himself who saved us.

That's me away then.

You are so right! so often Christ is right there in front of us yet we can not see Him for all the little things distracting us and blocking our view!
