Interruptions?

I would like to make 2013 a year where I delight in “interruptions.”  Personally, I can talk a lot about God’s sovereignty, but I also easily forget that He is in control of every aspect of my life, especially when my day doesn’t go as I hoped.  Though I work out a plan, He is the ultimate planner. I read this blog today and was encouraged.  The author quotes C.S. Lewis who has a great truth about the subject.  I think this quote needs to go where I can read it every day in 2013…

“The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s ‘own’, or ‘real’ life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life – the life God is sending one day by day: what one calls one’s ‘real life’ is a phantom of one’s own imagination.”

(from a 1943 letter from C.S. Lewis, included in Yours, Jack: Spiritual Direction from C.S. Lewis)
