From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

One of those days

Did you ever have one of those days where nothing really went wrong but it seemed nothing went exactly right either? Today was one of those days for me.
Those of you who know me know that I’m a planner. I really like my “to do” list. My list was all in order this morning then I got a call as I was heading out the door cancelling my morning “to do”. They said you can have the morning free. My mind said no I can’t take the morning off, I have too much to do but where do I start. I know that may sound crazy but that’s how it was. I even was mixed up on what day of the week it was. I thought it was Monday because I was working from home and not at my normal Tuesday spot. Sheesh! I’m too attached to my lists. I was productive but disjointed. I won’t say that I saw God move in any grand way today. I did have encounters and conversations that I wouldn’t have had if I been allowed to stick to my list. Who knows what God will do/ is doing with that.

I often pray that I am willing to let God interrupt my days as he sees fit. Many days I go with the flow and happily allow the change my plans. Other days I don’t do so well and get upset when my routine is interrupted. Today I was somewhere in between the two. I hope I allowed God to use me in someway.

This evening I looked up interrupt in the dictionary. Here is what I found
1, To cause or make a break in the continuity or uniformity of a course, process, condition, etc
2. To break off or cause to cease as in the middle of something.
3. To stop a person in the midst of doing or saying something.
All of these definitions/situations have a way of causing a goal oriented list maker such as myself to go into a tail spin!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
This has been my “life verse” for years. I desire to bring glory to God by letting him use me as he sees fit. However, I must say I tend to lean on my own understanding too often and get frazzled when he interrupts my day. The big question is will I cheerfully submit to him and allow him to make my paths straight. Am I interruptible?
