Roz Shares – A Day Filled With Divine Interruptions

Today’s blog post is on “Divine Interruptions.”
(Republishing from an earlier event!)

It’s often said:  “Life happens!” Please read on to find out what I’m talking about.  It’s interesting and might very well make your own sudden inconveniences or detours more fun and enjoyable.

Tuesday, I had a day filled with a number of Divine Interruptions that were beyond my control.  Because of these interruptions I was in places I ordinarily would not have been at, at times I would not have ordinarily been there!  The timing was such that I met two old friends individually and helped one with a computer issue and the other possibly with a more personal issue — as well as being able to catch up and chit chat for a bit.

You may ask:  “What is a Divine Interruption?”

Below is a direct quote I borrowed from Joel Osteen’s Facebook Post

— Begin Joel Osteen Quote on Divine Interruption —

Today’s Word:

We all have times when our plans don’t work out. We get delayed, interrupted, and inconvenienced. It’s easy to get frustrated and fight against everything that doesn’t go our way. But I’ve learned that every interruption is not bad. Every closed door doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. Every delay doesn’t mean you’re not where you’re supposed to be. There is something I call a divine interruption where God, on purpose, will delay us to protect us from an accident. On purpose, He will close a door because it’s not His best. Sometimes, God will allow us to be inconvenienced so we can help someone else in need. We have to be willing to press through difficulty so we can be at the right place at the right time.

The next time you’re interrupted, delayed, or inconvenienced, don’t start thinking, “This is a pain. This is getting me off schedule.” No, get a new perspective. Look for what God wants to do because it could be divine interruption or divine protection. Trust Him today because He is directing your steps.

Joel Osteen did a sermon on the subject of Divine Interruptions. It’s a great way to enjoy those unforeseen inconveniences that happen out of the blue while blessing others as well as yourself.

The aspect about Joel’s thoughts that I appreciated was turning the heart toward God in a variety of circumstances … and especially in any kind of “not so much as I had planned or even like” adventure.

It is a good reminder to turn to Him as opposed to away from him during the many and varied moments of our lives.

Thanks for sharing!

Lee, thanks so much for taking the time to comment.

I love to listen to Joel. What amazes me more are those times when I’m challenged and it seems like Joel’s message was written especially for me. I come away feeling like a million dollars! I usually like to take it as a sign from above that “all will be well!”
