Not Helpful To Others When I'm Distracted With Me

It's Friday and the weather is beautiful! Thanks be to God!  Although the weather is great and my family is happy and doing well, I am still distracted by some things....

Let me be a little transparent here:
1) I'm heavy hearted today for some of my friends who are having some difficult times this week with loss of friends, loss of relationships, great needs of financial help and great needs for guidance/wisdom.
2) I am throwing a slight pity party for myself for not having family nearby to go visit---or to let my son go and play with his cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.
3) And I am feeling bummed that I haven't worked harder to promote my MARY KAY COSMETICS independent beauty consulting business this month.  And I truly believe it is a fantastic business that has the potential to enrich women's lives in much more than just beauty products and skin care.  It is so important to me to encourage and support the women I meet.  So, to not work on my independent beauty consultation business this month, makes me feel like I have let others down or hindered other women from getting a blessing.  You may think this sounds crazy, but it's what's going on in my head right now.  And since this blog is about being a woman of truth, I'm gonna be THAT GIRL.  haha!!

The solution to these three current frustrations is pretty basic.  I need to spend time in God's Word more today and each day. I need to make it one of the first things I do each day.  I need to talk to the God of Heaven about these distractions and ask Him how to help me. God's Holy Spirit is ready and willing to help me move forward, pray for my struggling/suffering friends more diligently, stop being pitiful (haha!) and help me have the motivation to work on my consulting business with the level I can handle for this time in my life.  Christ can fix everything.  I just need to spend time with Him and allow Him to do a great work in me.

I am so relieved to know that God is always near and always available.  :-)
