Interruptions

1Jn 2:6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did

We must walk as Jesus walked.  How do we know how He walked?  We have the written word, the Holy Bible, full of examples.  One thing I’ve really noticed.  It didn’t matter where Jesus was going, how urgent it might have been or how tight of “schedule” He might have been on, He always stopped for those who asked.  Many of us are very task oriented.  Many of us are on tight schedule. We don’t like interruptions to our schedules.  When I am in the grocery store I just want to get what I need and get out of there.  I tend to put my blinders on and quite often don’t notice other people.  God’s been teaching me about what I now call “divine interruptions.”  If I have truly given Him my life then that includes my time.  If I truly believe He is in control of all that touches me then I must believe that anything I think is an interruptions is really God calling my attention to something or someone.  I have stopped in various stores to give a hug, hold a hand and/or pray with many people.  I have no interruptions in my “schedule.”  I just don’t always know what God wants in my schedule and must be open to anything at anytime.  If I’m not, I’m the one who misses out on a blessing.  God can always find someone else to flow through.
