Excuse me, God, but you’re interrupting.

By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

A couple thousand years ago, an innocent Jewish girl had expectations for her future—just like all her friends.

She’d met a nice guy, an honorable Jewish man who had plans. In fact, those plans were set in motion. Promises were made. Today we call it getting engaged.

Then God interrupted.

It wasn’t what the girl expected. Not what the guy planned. Things did not go well for them.

(The movie The Nativity Story does a great job of showing

 just how well things did not go. View a clip here.)

 God does that—interrupts our plans, our expectations.

Just like He interrupted the darkness and called it Light.

Evidently, this historic couple trusted Him enough to take him at his word.

What a concept.

What if we let God interrupt our lives in the New Year?

  1. Beautifully stated. Thanks.

    1. Thanks for reading, Marjorie.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing what God has planned for the New Year. His ways are higher than our ways. I praise Him for that because my plans don’t always work out for the best. It’s so good to know that God is in control! He has our best interest in mind. Though sometimes we don’t understand that as we only see the “small picture”!
    I pray that you and your family will be richly blessed in 2016!

    1. You are so right, Karen. He has fantastic blessings for us.

      Absolutely, Karen. So glad He’s got the reins.
