Every Interruption Is An Opportunity

This Christmas season; we can become weighed down with all we have to do. It’s no coincidence that the holidays are listed by many people as one of the most stressful times of year. Inevitably – what happens is we get interrupted. Things go wrong – issues arise; something fails to work the way we want; and even more stress can be created. But the thing I really hoped people walked away from Sunday with was this idea that every interruption can be an opportunity – to return to God. To accept that He is not surprised; to re-affirm that we are His servants; and to look for His will in the midst of the interruption.

My true hope is that you will encounter God in the midst of your holiday season and that maybe in those moments when things aren’t going right – you might be reminded He is here; He’s in control; and He may have something for you.

This week, I’d like to give you an invitation. Interrupt yourself. Maybe set a timer on your phone – and when the alarm goes off – find a quiet place and listen to some quiet Christmas music – or just get alone and take some time to pray. Interrupt yourself – give it shot. You might find it is the most sacred part of your day – and holiday season!

Have a wonderful week my friends!
