Acknowledge the Interruptions
Sometimes God allows an "interruption" in our lives to grow us.
These interruptions may be:
- A family event
- Your job situation
- Something someone says
- A sermon from your pastor
- What do you do with the interruption?
- Do we look at the interruption as a curse or a gift?
- How do we help our family understand this event?
Interruptions might be an opportunity to be more like Him. James 1:2-3 says, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the trying of your faith produces patience."
Interruptions might be an opportunity to lead. Psalm 75:6-7 says, "For promotion comes neither from the east nor the west nor the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another."
Interruptions might be an opportunity to learn. Philippians 3:10a says, "I want to know Christ - yes, to know the power of His resurrection."
Interruptions might be an opportunity to demonstrate or receive God's grace. Luke 15:20 says, "So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him, threw his arms around him and kissed him."
Interruptions might be an opportunity to share the Good News. Philippians 1:12 says, "Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the Gospel."
