Have you ever been interrupted before? One thing that really gets me riled up is when I get interrupted during
a really good show or movie! Am I the only
one? Let’s just say that with a six-month-old
son I rarely make it through anything without
being interrupted somehow.
Have you ever had your faith interrupted?
Is your faith currently interrupted? Many
times in my life I have felt far from God,
alone among a crowd of family and friends
encouraging me and guiding me back on
the right path of a deepening relationship
The reality is that being far from God will
always result in the feeling of emptiness.
The world has gotten pretty good at finding
some counterfeits for filling the void that
can only be filled by our loving Creator, but
these things always end up creating a larger
space to be filled, a bigger gap between us
and what we need most.
The beautiful thing I’ve been learning
about God is that His heart is always
to restore, to recharge, to reset, and to
restart! No matter what, His desire is that
no one would perish, and that all would
have eternal life. That means along the
way everyone needs all of these things to
The even more amazing thing is that we
don’t even deserve it once! But we have
this gift whenever we need it!
Of course, it’s so easy to stray and find
yourself in a place you never thought you
would be, doing things you never thought
you would do. But it’s the act of a loving
God who hits the reset button to restore
us. After an interruption, it’s God who
brings us back to how we were created to
be, recharges our call and restarts the work
He created us to do.
Wherever you are at in your relationship
with God, however old you are, we all need
this sequence in our life. We all fall short,
we all get interrupted and we all miss the
What is the dream that is hidden in your
heart? What have you been created to do?
Who have you been created to reach? How
have you been created to do these things?
Every day we are given the opportunity to
humble ourselves and allow God to nudge
us back on track and give us the tools we
need to succeed.
Are you interrupted? Ask God to step in
and hit the reset button.
