We have to Remember on Purpose to Focus our thoughts. It is so easy to become distracted with all the noise of the world, the noise of fears, sadness, disappointment, past mistakes, lies, and just plain foolishness.  We become distracted with our desires, plans, and wants, our needs and lack shout to be heard and given attention, driving us to try and manipulate situations to go a certain way.
The Noise of comparisons, the noise of jealousy, of hurt and pain, of sickness and illnesses....
They All compete for our attention. Quiet is needed for us to focus and remain truthful and strong. Boldness is necessary over our emotions and self will, so that we are walking, living and moving Through the Spirit of our Lord.

The Lord wants us to Focus on Him, to Allow His Love and Faithfulness to Be the Loudest Sound we Hear.  He desires for us to React in and through Love and Faith to all things that come against His purposes, plans and will for our lives.  To quiet those things that compete for His Glory! 
So that when we speak Power combined with our Faith, "PEACE! Be STILL!"
Every thing Calms Down!

These distraction create resistance to the changes He desires to Make in us and for us.  They are sent to steal our faith, joy, power, love, to make us stagnant in His purposes for the Building up of His Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven. His Kingdom is Within Us--In our Hearts!

They create stress, confusion and we end up with a mind that wanders through scattered thoughts, entertaining the "what ifs, and the "but".

Use your gifts of Self-Control and  Push yourself to stay focused on His Love and purposes for each day. Every time ramblings, negative and useless thoughts invade your mind,
Focus on Today's purpose, since we live One day at a time.  Remember, that Today Is Enough For Today!

We have to re-train/re-teach ourselves to React to every problem, trouble, sickness, illness, every health issue, every lack and need, every angry person, every rejection, every hindrance, with Love and Faith.
Using our gifts of Self-control and Self-discipline Keeps our emotions from guiding our reaction, so that our hurt and pain, our unresolved issues do not move us to react through  them.  These are dead, toxic places in us that we give power to because we will not Face them and kill them with the Truth of God's Love.

If we feed and water these emotional responses, then we are saying that they have power over us, we are saying we would rather have them instead of the Holy Spirit as our comforter.  We are saying that we would rather be defensive toward every thing and person that God sends to Speak the Truth of the Lord that we Need to hear so that we will be Cleansed of these dead, toxic places in our hearts.

These are every day things that are Out of Our Control --we have No power to change them without the Power of God's Holy Spirit Helping us to do so. These are the things that Must be handed over to God in the name of Jesus so that He is able to turn them all around, to manipulate them into Glory for Him and Victory for us. We Must cooperate with His Spirit in order to Allow spiritual and emotional growth and maturity to continue to do what God sent them to do.

All of these distractions are sent to make us and keep us unproductive and to move us away from being obedient to His leading and Love. To keep us off balance, to keep us in darkness and to keep clarity away from our minds. If we hold on and water these seeds of distraction we will end up as hypocrites, our mouths will speak LOVE, but our Hearts will be against all things that God Is.

I Encourage you to Focus your mind and push away negative, and unproductive thoughts and ways- to Call upon and allow the Holy Spirit to Cleanse our spiritual lives, to make the atmosphere and environment CLEAN so that we are able to Receive greater clarity for the Purpose we are to accomplish on this day.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will bring to pass all the visions, plans, purposes and Love that you are in need of.

In the name of Jesus, So Be It!

"For the weapons of our warfare are Not carnal but Mighty in God for Pulling Down strongholds, Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself Against the knowledge of God, Bringing every thought into Captivity to the Obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled."2 Corinthians 10:4-6

"This Is The Confidence we Have in Approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." 1 John 5:14

As I was watering our flowers, I focused on the fact that I had to provide more water for the plants that are in Large containers. Now, I know this, but I had not given thought to it in detail, specifically how this is connected and relates to our need for the Lord's Water, our presence in His Presence every day.  So, I am standing over each plant, I've got the nozzle set to "shower" and "gentle water pressure" so I will not provide the water too strong or too fast. Either one would defeat the purpose of watering as I would waste the water and disturb the soil in a way that could damage the roots.

  The Spirit of the Lord began to say to me, See, the larger the vessel the more soil to provide for. Don't stop watering before you provide All the water that the soil needs.  Make sure to
give them a good soaking so that "all" the dry soil gets the water it needs. After you wet the soil, Make sure to pull out the small weeds trying to grow in the soil around the flower, they are easier to pull out after they are wet.
Pay attention and make sure you know which seeds you are watering, the good seed or the bad seed.

This made me think about myself, my family members, and all the people I come into contact with each day.
What am I watering (through my words, thoughts, prayers, praise and actions) in each that I deal with each day, the good seeds or the bad seeds?
 Am I providing enough water to bring forth the New Growth in myself and each of us?
Am I sitting with my Lord Long enough to be thoroughly and completely watered=Soaked so that all the New Growth God has planned in me and my people is properly feed?

We are vessels, some with large containers and some with small containers. I am not speaking about the size of our physical selves, but our hearts and the calling that God has placed on each of us.

We have the seeds that God has planted in us and everyday we need spiritual watering, cultivating, weeding, etc, in order to grow the way each seed has been Planned to grow and produce.
We are vessels/containers for His Holy Spirit who provides the gifts and the fruit of the Spirit.
Spiritually watering the dry soil of our hearts feeds the seeds that God has sown into us.
They have to be Spiritually Watered every day or the Good seeds will die and the seeds of weeds will flourish.

The larger the container that holds the flower or plant, the More water you have to give it.

Some people who are Large containers, (called to do Large Work for God) don't sit long enough to be Completely Watered. There are areas of soil all through the container that do not get thoroughly watered. They stay dry, unable by faith, unprepared to fulfill the Purpose given to them.
Just as a flower will not be as Effective in Providing Blooms as Planned for it.
Some people have large Work to do for God, but don't sit with Him long enough to be thoroughly Watered, in order to completely accomplish what God gave them to do.
They miss the Fullness of the Blessing, so God does not get All the Glory.
Many kill off the New Shoots of growth that God has begun in them. They do not water them or provide any spiritual food to these new growths.
Then you hear them wonder out loud, what they think is wrong.

*There is a small shoot of New Growth*

There are times where we spend too much energy fussing, debating, thinking on issues that we have No control over when we should 'Right Away', simply Give these things to the Lord in Prayer. Knowing/Resting in the Truth that He has a plan to make it all work properly.

We get distracted by some "chasing our tail mission", wasting time and energy and never getting the results necessary to add Power to our Faith, or Faith to His Power.
  We have to know our purpose concerning every situation and set of circumstances, and discern when all we are to do is hand the issue over to the Lord for Only He can resolve what is unresolved.
We are to REST in His comfort, allowing our trust and faith to help us wait to See His Glory in the situation, based on God's timing and order, Not ours.
I encourage you to Stop moving so much, To Stop trying to do God's Part and do Your Part, To Stop occupying yourself with empty busy work, and To Sit with Him, and allow His Spirit to Completely Water Your Whole Self, so that you are Restored, Renewed, and Prepared -filled with what You will Need to Accomplish the Work that You have been Called to do!
Give back to God what God has given you. This means, what ever the vision is, don't dwell on it, praise it through. What ever the assignment is, Don't fear doing it, give it back to Him and let His Spirit lead  you to accomplish it as He has planned.

There is Purpose in the Process that God has initiated for us, and there is Purpose in the Promises that God has made to us. Don't rush the processes and don't confuse the purpose of either of them.
We have to be careful Not to try and  Make the vision or promise come to pass by inserting our own thoughts, ways, thinking, and actions. If we do that, we will mess things up.

When we are in a time of transitioning from one season to another, respect the process. Slow down, and Wait for the Spirit of our Lord to led you. The enemy is always waiting for us to attempt to do things on our own and will bring to us a storm full of confusion, lies, and distractions.
he wants us to think we are going in the wrong direction, that we have made a mistake and we need to do this or that. If this or that is Not what the spirit of God has told you to do, then don't do it.
Use your gift of self-control to keep yourself disciplined.
When we stay within His Peace, Joyful, and at Rest, we are calm and able to Hear the leading and correcting of His spirit.
Do not borrow trouble, which means, don't get involved with anybody's
"good idea". their drama, their messes, and their lack of faith and trust.
Ask for a stronger spiritual discernment from the Holy Spirit so that You will Know your purpose in people's lives.

God will Keep us as long as we Wait on the moving of His spirit and not allow our emotions to lead us, or following what we see and hear others doing.

The anointing that we need to accomplish each Work from God He will supply.
In the name of Jesus, so be it!

Matthew 11:28-30   "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

Hebrews 4:9-10  There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.  For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
