One recent morning on our drive to school, Will was reading a Highlights Magazine. He was very interested in a section talking about the deepest parts of the earth. He asked me what I knew and then shared about several different places around the earth. It was so nice to have our busy morning rhythm interrupted to consider the deepest places and the tallest places on our planet. Our mornings are not always so calm and peaceful, but this morning’s reminded me of what a gift we have in the place we live and all of the surprising details in God’s creation.

It’s funny to me how sometimes interruptions in our day can bring moments of calmness and appreciation. While others we avoid like the plague. The same situation would have likely brought about a different reaction from any number of people.

 

I realize that these two encounters are not earth shattering in comparison to some of the challenging experiences that we face in life. They just reminded me that when we face situations that are unexpected, our response to them often shapes our faith in a significant way. So then, how do your reactions to life’s interruptions or unexpected circumstances, shape your faith?  Sometimes I find when life is a little bit unpredictable, I realize my need to live by faith and depend upon God’s guidance.

 

Take some time to you consider the ways that life’s interruptions shape your faith.

 

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

Prayer for Today

Gracious God, Help me to be more aware of your presence with me each day. Guide me as I seek to walk in faith, even when I cannot see the outcome. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
