"We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God. God will be constantly crossing our paths and canceling our plans by sending us people with claims and petitions. we may pass them by, preoccupied with our more important tasks, as the priest passed by the man who had fallen among thieves, perhaps - reading the Bible." D. Bonhoeffer, Life Together
What do you think? How can we know an interruption is by God? Are all interruptions by God? It's interesting to think of, especially as a mom to 3 kids, where I know that oftentimes my agenda and plans are interrupted by them, and for good reason. They truly are important and truly are from God.
Still, things must get done and I struggle with knowing if there's a balance and what that is.
