God is in the Interruptions

Mark Lowry posted this on his blog. It really spoke to me, so I thought I’d share it with you.


“God is in the Interruptions”

“As many of you have heard me say in my concerts, I was having breakfast with Gloria Gaither one morning and she told me that God was in the interruptions of life and very seldom in our plans.  I investigated Scriptures and saw where Mary was interrupted by an angel, Jesus was interrupted with a woman with an issue of blood, and again while He was preaching a sermon some men sawed through the roof and laid a crippled man in front of Him.

Can you think of other places in Scripture where Jesus or Peter or Paul or other were interrupted and God was in it?”

How often do we miss the point of what God is doing because we think it’s an interruption? How many opportunities have we missed because we were too focused on what we thought was the goal?
