Interruptions-Ride the Wave


It’s amazing how good intentions can become so distracted by interruptions in our lives.  I am the kind of person that when I start thinking about something I get going and then “bam” another thought leads to another and then “bam” it happens again.  I like to call it “thinking in the flow!”  But I am also a little “squirrel!” type of person, like the dog on the kid’s movie Up!  I can get distracted so easy and lose focus, and even though my heart is in the right place, my thought and direction get “interrupted.”  Paul deals with this very thing in 2 Corinthians 8:10-12 (The Message) So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. Your heart’s been in the right place all along. You’ve got what it takes to finish it up, so go to it. Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t. The heart regulates the hands. This isn’t so others can take it easy while you sweat it out. No, you’re shoulder to shoulder with them all the way, your surplus matching their deficit, their surplus matching your deficit. In the end you come out even. As it is written, Nothing left over to the one with the most, Nothing lacking to the one with the least. Too many times those interruptions get us off track and off task enough to cause us to doubt ourselves and then the faith goes out the window…Tragic!  One thing leads to another and the very “fluid” thing you were working on is also the very thing that leads you down the wrong path.  The path of doubt!!!  The doubt path leads to mediocrity and apathy and when those have taken their toil there’s not much left.  I think we call them “scraps.”  As Paul told the church at Corinth.  “Don’t worry about the things you can’t change, just concentrate on those things you can.  Come back to God and come back to a life of victory and purpose.  Pray for God to stop the interruptions from people, circumstances, society, etc.  Our world is on a massive wave that will end in destruction.  There are plenty of people being gobbled up by this wave and it gets worse every day.   I say, “Surf the wave itself and stay above all the faithless, hopeless, nay sayers that can keep you from living the life of freedom Jesus died for each of us to experience.  If you are on task and serving God and you see His hand guiding your life, then keep on going and surf on His board for awhile.  The view is awesome!!! As I continue to try to stay ahead of the apathy that is increasing at a fast rate, I am always trying to see what I can do to be effective for God in my daily life.  The best thing I can do is “fix my eyes on Him” (Hebrews 12:2) and ride the wave, instead of letting it overwhelm me.  I know there are sharks out there just waiting for me to ride that wave, so they can devour me, but with God’s help I can avoid them and see the horizon of victory through the power of God’s love and grace.  Since this is shark week, I thought this word might be encouraging to those of us who are still believing for God to intervene and spark a great awakening in our land.  He will!!  Keep the interruptions at bay!!  ‘Fight the JAWS!!
