Nobody likes disruption of any sort. We like our plans to stay planned, and for nothing to interefere. For instance, this past Sunday my boys and I were watching the Falcons game. It was in overtime - a great game. At a crucial play, our power went out. Disruption. Angst. You feel me?
Our lives will be disrupted. It may be a health scare, financial downturn, or relational upheaval. This disruption isn't intended to cause angst, fear, or discouragement. God wants to use it to get our attention. He wants to show us something through the disruption so He can do something in us.
A friend told me that the worse my disruption, the closer I am to getting what God wants for me. The key is to not leave too soon. Don't give in to discouragement and doubt.
Where have you been disrupted? Where have you bailed out, or gotten discouraged? Maybe you should go back there and find what God is after.
