I have a problem. I don’t like to be interrupted. I doubt I’m alone, but I have the sneaking suspicion that I have a bigger problem than most people. I like to get things done, I don’t multi-task very well (unless it comes to watching multiple sporting events at once), and I don’t like to procrastinate. But I’m a pastor and a husband and a dad and a neighbor and many other things. There are times when I would like to finish the book I’m reading, to finish the sermon I’m working on, or to just close my eyes for 5 minutes or so. Invariably, I get interrupted. I even got interrupted while working on this blog. Whether it’s a phone call or a knock at the door, it bothers me. In fact, I hate it.
“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)
