Life Interrupted

We started a new ladies bible study last night.

Jonah, Navigating a Life Interrupted by Priscilla Shirer.

OH MY! Did she bring the message right to me last night.

She said the interrupted life is the privileged life. Think about that for a minute. Think about all of the things that interrupt your day. Cell phone, computer, kids, restaurant, traffic, school, work, doorbell, spouse, and parents or grandparents. Are these really an interruption? We are privileged to have each one of these in our lives.

But as children of God we are privileged. God comes to talk to us during our interrupted time. He comes to us. How awesome is that. That he would want to talk to me. He comes to me in my hopelessness to give me hope.

I can't wait to see where this journey with Jonah brings me.

What I can say is this. I hope I am never to far gone that God feels the need for me to be vomited out of the mouth of a big fish onto the beach. I hope God will come to me sooner. (Thanks BH!)

That is an awesome study! I did it on my own last summer. I have been so blessed by all the details that can be learned from the stories of Bible characters when we really take time to study them.
