Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand (Proverbs 19:21, ESV).
Some of the most memorable times I have of God working in me and through me have happened when I was interrupted.
I wasn’t planning for anything. I certainly wasn’t ready for anything. But God was okay with that. He didn’t need me to be “ready,” however I might define being ready. He simply needed me to be available.
So, in those times when our schedules get thrown off, when we encounter people who seemingly divert us from our original goal, let’s not react in frustration but choose to be open to God doing something amazing and surprising. After all, those interruptions might just be opportunities for God to do what only He can do through us. We just need to be willing and available!
