I’m not a fan of the interrupted life (unless your name is Piper, of course!) There it is. I said it.
But what if my perceived interruption is actually divine intervention? Enter the study of Jonah.
Becky Kirby and I are eager to meet and greet the 25+ women who’ve signed up for this study, which kicks off Tuesday night. Below is but a nibble from the smorgasbord of truth that awaits:
- Interruptions only become positive when we consider the person or circumstances to be more significant than what currently occupies our attention.
- A life interrupted by a holy God is a privilege.
- Your story begins with God’s call. It is not your legacy or lack thereof that makes you significant. It is God’s call and your willingness to obey it.
- Making sense of what God has asked or feeling compelled to cooperate cannot be the prerequisite for choosing obedience. His Word must be enough.
The quote that plunged the deepest through my steel-toed shoes: If you find yourself balking at God’s instructions in your life, it is an indication of the importance you place on God and His will.
Our final word of encouragement to attendees (and ourselves) as we approach Tuesday night: Come anticipating — fully expecting — God to speak, to move, and to divinely intervene on your behalf.

"If you find yourself balking at God’s instructions in your life, it is an indication of the importance you place on God and His will."
I've only previewed Jonah, but I LOVE Priscilla Shirer! She's so solid and I know you and your ladies are in for a treat!(And a few bruised toes!)
That's exactly what I wrote in my book, Vonda.
I agree, Susan!
I look forward to studying it with everyone starting Tuesday.
"If you find yourself balking at God’s instructions in your life, it is an indication of the importance you place on God and His will." hits hard. It's bound to be a challenging study.
Ellen, I look forward to your being there! 🙂
