Divine Interruptions

I believe that our life has been crafted before we were even born. Every little things that happen to us happen for a cause. We can either choose to acknowledge that God is truly alive or we can ignore it and take it as the fate of our life.

God's will comes to us in strange ways, often in the form of interruptions. Just when we think our duties are done for the day and we've settled in for a quiet evening at home, someone calls on the telephone or shows up on our doorstep asking for our time. "Are you busy?" they ask.

The best thing to do is to stop looking at these intrusions as interruptions. Instead, we should take them as opportunities that God is sending us to serve those in need—to listen well, to show love, to help them on their journey toward intimacy with God.

Sometimes, the person whom we hate most is the one who comes to our aid when we are in trouble. We might even have a soft spot in our heart for those whom we despise.

A certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. —Luke 10:33

Lord, if I'm feeling rushed today,
I need your eyes to help me see
That when an interruption comes
It is an opportunity.

An interruption may be a divine appointment.
