CONVERSATION FOR JULY 2017: INTERRUPTED
Interruptions change the flow of life, requiring energy and time. It’s difficult, if, not impossible to balance interruptions. Sometimes interruptions are so stinking big that nothing on the list compares or seems to matter. The thing is . . . some interruptions are deeply disturbing . . . while others are AMAZING. There’s an element of insanity to the way interruptions abruptly change everything. The pressure of it all worsens when the guilt of not completing the list comes knocking on the door.
So here’s the thing . . .
Interruptions require grace as much for ourselves as others. Most interruptions require us to simplify and take something off the list. Some interruptions require an overhaul of life. Because. Life is not about doing it all. It’s beyond unreasonable to think and do otherwise.
While there’s a long list of ways to respond rather than to react when interruptions enter in, remember this today: Be confident God will use the interruption in the most creative ways to bring good from it. This truth is not just a greeting-card-good-luck-charm–this is to be underlined deep in the soul:
(Quote in the conversation about GOODNESS from Brennan Manning can be found in the book, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out” )
Today’s Key God-Word:
“My grace is enough to cover and sustain you. My power is made perfect in weakness.” So ask me about my thorn, inquire about my weaknesses, and I will gladly go on and on—I would rather stake my claim in these and have the power of the Anointed One at home within me.
