Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
*James 1:21 NIV
Sometimes there are things and people in our lives that serve as distractions, and keep us from going deeper in God. Often, we have large to subtle distractions that take our mind off of God's positivity, and keep us trapped in negativity. We become so overwhelmed by what isn't there, due to the confusion of evil, that we don't accept the possibilities of what could be or what is currently occurring in our lives. Don't limit yourself to negativity or habits that hinder the vision God is trying to give you. Take a stand to remove distractions, and embrace what He is trying to show you even if it looks different from what you imagine.
