Respond To Interruptions

Have you ever got your day planned? You’ve got everything figured out in your head. You know what is supposed to happen. You know who you’re supposed to see and talk too. You’ve got it all set.

Then life interruptions come like a twister, messed up everything. Now you’re trying to get back on your feet, you don’t know where to start. When you look around its all chaos, you’re just lost. How do you climb out of the hole and get back to normal?

Here are some tips you may consider:

In the previous post, we mentioned that interruptions reveal our limitations and our need for God in this life. When it happens,  I believe, this is the best time to reconnect with God or to seek Him on a deeper level. Invite Him to give you direction because He knows the things we are supposed to get done in life and our times are in His hands (Ps. 31:15)

Along with that, loosen up the gears! Do something, start something new, anything. It can be one small thing. What’s important is, you are not staying stagnant for fear of letting depression take a hold of you. Get out of your comfort zone; you never know this can lead you to something great. You may need to talk to a counselor, go to a conference, exercise, start a journal, visit a friend or family out of town, go to a new restaurant, redecorate your house, change your style, etc…

Although interruptions are meant to stop you it should not be your final destination.

Our lives are full of interruptions. They are aggravating and frustrating but they are also meant as a blessing for our own protection, to teach us or to make us listen and even slowing us down.

I have experienced interruptions and saw God’s hand at work in them. At first, it’s hard to understand and accept this reality, but somewhere down the road you realize: “that’s the Lord’s bell reminding me that I don’t have life figured out on my own; He does.”

When interruptions get in the way of our plans, how we respond to them reveals our priorities; they never get in the way of God’s plans for our lives.
