- A child of mine gets violently nauseous.
- My Bride's car gets stuck in the snow.
- A friend's water pipes burst.
- Someone needs to talk about a passing comment I made that has been bothering them.
- ___________________________ (Insert your interruption of choice, here.)
So, the so-called interruptions are not that, at all. They are opportunities. Jesus knew this, and lived it. To become more like Him (which is, in fact, God the Father's purpose and will for my life), I need to do what the Apostle Paul exhorts me to do, in Galatians 6:10 —
"So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith."
My prayer today is that the Holy Spirit will remind me of this realization, always, and that He will give me — and you — the strength to embrace "interruptions" as the disguised opportunities that they are.
