We’ve heard from lots of our MAMAS that they’ve been interrupted by a sickness in their homes. It got us thinking that no matter your season of motherhood, we all face interruptions – unexpected surprises that can wreak chaos on our best-laid plans. Today we’re going to talk about how to see interruptions as opportunities for God to do something only he can do.
We all get interrupted. In fact, you might say that life is a series of interruptions. Our natural response it to see them as negative and frustrating, but maybe they’re an opportunity to trust and ask for God’s help. Jesus was the master of holy interruptions. Rebecca shares one examples from scripture in Luke 8:40-56.
- Interruptions give us the opportunity to pull close to God. We can panic or we can pray. Philippians 4:6, “but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”
- Interruptions give us the opportunity to release our time and plans to God. Am I working for my kingdom or God’s kingdom? Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
- Interruptions give us the opportunity to be PRESENT with today. Presence over perfection – perfection tells me to perform faster, push harder, and produce more. Presence tells me that today is mine to embrace and enjoy – Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.”
