Distract Me!

Spiritual warfare!  That is really the only way to classify all of the "activities" in this life that hinder me/us from spending time with God.  Even "good" things can be bad if they are preventing me from that private time with Father God.  And in this day and age, there is plenty of "good" that is attempting to do that! 

"Distract this man from that which would
distract this man from You...
Turn away mine eyes from what
is lustful in Your view...
Not again to be enticed
by Satan and his ways...
See that I adhere to this, Lord,
all throughout my days!
Revive me, rather, in Your ways,
establish deep Your Word...
make me to know those things more lovely
than I've ever heard!
Devoted unto You am I!
You, alone, I fear!
Thus, only unto pleasing YOU
let this man persevere!
Oh Lord, You've taken my reproach;
Your judgments, they are good!
For Your judgments do I long,
not those of stone or wood!
Revive me in Your righteousness,
restore me by Your grace
in my daily quest, oh Lord,
to see Your blessed face!"

I just merely outlined what The Psalmist wrote in 119:37-40. 
The enemy is so crafty.  He knows that if he can get us busy enough, even with doing "good," he can keep us from fellowship with Jesus Christ.  DON'T LET HIM!!  Always seek God's balance in your day, and you will SOMEHOW accomplish more than "just filling it with good."
