interruptions…

The last couple of days…
diligently looking for space to write… prepare… for the stepping out of faith
seem to be filled with interruptions…

Even now… the timer on the oven…
beep… beep… beep…

I find myself wondering…
When will I find time…?

Reminding myself…
This is His work… not mine…

Still… frustration rises…
(wanting to sit… listen…
bang out of words…
edit… proof…
maybe even prepare a place on the web…)
I don’t get to do what I want to do…!

On the end of this second day of interruptions…
with little to no space to write…
I consider what He might be teaching me…

The Jesus Way… comes to mind…
with its teaching of the prophets

Nothing is hid from the scrutiny of God; nothing is exempt from the rule of God; nothing escapes the purposes of God. The ground is holy; people are holy; words are holy: Holy, holy, holy.

—Eugene Peterson, The Jesus Way

…nothing escapes the purposes of God…
the ground is holy…

Interruption-filled ground…
Holy… holy… holy…

Interruptions… fulfilling His purpose…
Holy… holy… holy…

I’m pressed to consider holy interruptions…
and the lesson I’m to learn…

What does it look like to give a holy response…? to days filled with interruptions…? to see interruptions as holy…?!

So… I still my heart…
receive these frustrating days…
as holy grace…
steeped in His purpose…

 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions
of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy,
you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written,
“You shall be holy for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:14-16 ESV
What in your life…? is hard to receive as holy ground…? filled with His purpose…?
