?My whole life I have been complaining that my work was constantly interrupted,? Henri Nouwen said near the end of his life, ?until I discovered the interruptions were my work.?? (Buchanan, Mark. The Rest of God: Restoring Your Soul by Restoring Sabbath. Nashville: W Publishing Group, 2006, p. 79.)
Buchanan gets to the heart of one of our most basic struggles in our journey with God: the issue of agenda. When I am strongly attached to my plans and my program, I may judge divine interventions as interruptions.
Think of your experiences of feeling interrupted by someone recently. How might that have been a door opened by God for you to ?live Jesus? with that? Think and talk with God about this?
