Even The Best Laid Plans Get Interrupted
This morning I awoke at 6am and went to the bathroom to get dressed and read my Bible. However, I heard something outside the bathroom door. I opened the door and to my great surprise I found 3 of my children happily playing with blocks. At that point I could have easily gotten angry because my plans to read my Bible were interrupted or I could just accept it and make the best of the situation. So many times throughout the day I get interrupted (even now as I type this, I must go back and forth and type every chance I can get). Life is about a choice. Do I chose to accept the situation, change the situation, whine and complain about the situation and do nothing, or just get angry and yell at my kids and those who are interrupting my schedule? It all goes back to whether or not this is really my schedule. One thing that I am learning is that this life is not about me and always following my schedule, but being flexible and realizing that the Lord is in control of my schedule and it is really His schedule. My character is being shaped throughout all of this. My prayer is that I will be submissive to His plan for my life today.
