Have you ever been interrupted? A call, friend, emergency, or deadline strikes out of nowhere and BAM you’re irritated and frustrated. In this weeks podcast we will take a look at seeing those interruptions as blessings.
Interruptions Can Be Blessings
Looking through scriptures you see often Jesus being interrupted. I have to admit, He handled those interruptions much better than I do. This rigid, fast-paced world keeps us focused on those daily to-do’s and well — we just don’t have time to be interrupted.
But we can begin to see our interruptions as blessings if we’ll stop and notice the situation differently. Reading the passage of scripture beginning with Luke 8:40, we see Jesus was interrupted not only once, but twice.
1. When we see interruptions as God appointments.
-interruptions are beyond irritants, they are needs
-interruptions are not a call for drama, but rather for understanding
2. When we’re ready to step out of our routines.

- Learn to be in the moment and stop for others.
Learn to live like Jesus and recognize those interruptions are precious moments to bless others.
Take moment to recognize an interruption as a God appointment.
