Pause a Moment
After school pick up is a plan we usually have in place on a regular basis. Today there was an unexpected complication. We all have plans and we also know that unexpected complications happen in our lives. It happens. We make plans and suddenly there’s a circumstance that wasn’t part of our plan. We have to switch gears. We have to make a choice. We can react to the situation or we can choose something else. What that next choice is, that is the first question we must all ask ourselves when we find ourselves in the middle of the unexpected. Numbers 9:8 MSG “Moses said, “Give me some time; I’ll find out what GOD says in your circumstances.” Take a cue from Moses. Moses suggests that we take a minute to ask God what to do next. Yep. Praying without ceasing means that we are talking to Jesus about our day as our day happens. That means when the unexpected happens we only need to ask Him. We pause a moment to pray. Ask Him about our new situation. Ask Him what we can do next that would be helpful. When the unexpected happens, pause a moment and pray.
