    EASTER : Mardi Gras - Ash Wednesday - Lenten Season

    EASTER : Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ on the third day after His crucifixion. It is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the significance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which Christianity is based (1 Corinthians 15:3-4,14). The four Gospels make it clear that Jesus was crucified in conjunction with the Jewish Passover (Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-15; John 18:28,39; 1...  Read More...

Interruptions!

Just around the corner like someone ready to spring out and growl at you when you least expect it, interruptions always seem to get an immediate response from us.  They can make you jump back, scream, heart-beat in your throat, and get "insta-mad" OR respond by flexing to the situation... ready to adapt to the forced changes.

I'm amazed at how Jesus never seem to have an interruption.  He is not caught off guard... always ready to love and reward faith.  Hebrews 11:6, "Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him."  I want to learn to respond to all my interruptions like Jesus.

One of my interruptions this week was a check engine light on the highway.  After coming to grips with the changes it was going to make in my schedule and turning down the radio (because that usually makes it go away), we began the diagnosis and repairs.  It definitely took longer than I would have planned... got mad at the tools and everyone who designed the van... but all seemed to be brought into perspective when Stacey said that maybe we were not supposed to be on the road that day.  Faith gave a fresh perspective.  We were not stranded and it gave us extra time with extended family... was able to hang out with my dad longer, take my kids swimming & fishing, and see Mamaw again... plus we were eventually able to fix the problem and get home safely the next day.

Share a story of how FAITH changed your interruption.
