      Distraction can be good if it is from something bad and vice versa. I can be doing something good and get seriously distracted with something I know I should not be doing

      I typically think distractions are bad, but sometimes it can be more like a refocus. It’s good to be distracted from worry and anxiety.

      Sometimes distraction is good to me because when attacking comes and difficulties leads me to make strong relationships with God by reading a true word God and prayers. So distraction gives ample time to focus on Jesus christ.

      Sometimes, I do think that distraction can be good. There are times when I feel that it is healthy for me to distract myself from a current reality so I can have time to calm down if I’m angry, or process something if my feelings are hurt. The distraction can provide the needed time and space to formulate a healthy response. Distraction is bad when it is taking me away from the most important things in life, as identified by the Lord.

      I must say, the pandemic is a good distraction for me. God has enabled me to focus on self development, spending more time in prayer and studying His Word. Prior to the pandemic, there were too many distractions.

      Some distractions are good, but distraction from spending time with God has been hard for me. I have been distracted since I got out of the hospital. trying to focus on physical therapy, warring with my body, but I have forgotten that God has been with me. I do not ask the why, but I am not taking the time I know God wants me to take to get better.

      When God reminds us of who he is with blessings that come by surprise

      Distraction was a very welcome thing at times during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was good to be distracted with my own family as what is going on in our world has been so distressing. On the other hand, this distracted me from my focus of Christ. My family definitely tears me between the world and Christ at times.

      It has been good to be distracted when my mind is focused on self-destructive thoughts.
