Opportunities in Interruption
Last night I had a hard time getting to sleep. Just as I’d drift off, something would wake me: the storm that passed through (Thank you, LORD!!!), my charging phone chirping as the power flickered, etc., leading me to unwillingly greet 4 am.
I know many folks who when they have trouble getting to sleep, see it as an opportunity from God to pray, and I admire that, and wish I’d think of that more often. Usually, I’m working too hard trying to get back to sleep to think of it though.
Makes me wonder how many other times I miss an opportunity to pray because I’m trying too hard to accomplish what I’m “supposed” to be doing in spite of interruptions and obstacles.
