Moving From a Life of Distraction to a Life of Devotion



Grant Partrick shares a convicting talk about distraction and its role in the theft of the devotion God deserves. He challenges listeners through the story of Martha’s busyness to bring awareness to the pressing and increasing need for attentiveness. Grant highlights three major truths to lead us to ask the question, “Are there any things you need to stop doing, start doing, or do differently?”

Key Takeaway

1. Are there any things on your calendar or in your life you need to stop doing altogether? 2. Are there any things you need to start doing? 3. Are there any things you need to do differently?

1. Distraction is the great enemy of devotion.

2. Busyness is never the goal.

3. Our distractions move toward devotion through a vehicle called 'Discipline'.


1. "Today is the 'tomorrow' you were worried about yesterday." 2. "One of the wiliest errors of the enemy is to destroy the best by the good." 3. "You will break the bow if you keep it always bent." 4. "When you lead, lead from approval, not for approval." 5. "There is a big difference between giving God your time and giving God your attention." 6. "A full calendar with a starving soul does not please God."
