I am not sure how it is for everyone else, but there are times when I find myself getting distracted by things that lead me off course from what matters most. It is far too easy for me to chase after rabbits that will lead nowhere, but simply waste a lot of time.
Yesterday, I had a conversation with an old friend who is facing a difficult chapter in his life. A little over two weeks ago, he was diagnosed with colon cancer. As we spoke on the phone I was overwhelmed and encouraged by his attitude and his confidence that he was going to beat this disease.
After we spoke, I spent some time thinking about the life that I have been given. My hope and prayer is that I will remain focused upon the most important roles that I have been given in life; Christ-follower, Husband and Dad.
Regardless of what happens in life it is important that I never forget what truly matters. Hopefully, my meandering thoughts will encourage someone or help them to make sure their energy and focus is upon what truly matters most.
