Today is a new day, and none of us knows what the day will bring. We may have our schedule planned down to the minute, or we may wake up wondering what we will do today. Yet, we don’t know what may eventuate, or interruptions will intervene and turn our plans on their head. However, interruptions are at the heart of life, and it is often during the interruptions that some of the most important happenings of our lives occur. It is especially true concerning issues of faith. It is often those accidental encounters that change our lives or the lives of those we encounter. It lies in the unexpected happenings that we encounter angels unawares. In such happenings, God sneaks upon us, and we enter the presence of the holy sometimes in the most unlikely ways or in the most unexpected places. So often, we fail to allow for these kinds of interruptions.
Consequently, we miss those crucial and potentially important happenings because we are so preoccupied with what we are doing or what we think is important. Let us strive to live each day with one eye on the possibility of such happening occurring in the most unlikely places and the most unexpected ways. Such interruptions and happenings are vital to a living, dynamic faith.
