Life is full of stuff we don’t expect. For example, yesterday, a massive storm dumped an ocean load of rain in the afternoon, so my softball game was cancelled, unexptectedly. And I read this morning about Jesus’ disciples eating heads of grain on the Sabbath, something very unexpected within the Jewish culture.
For some of us, the unexpected isn’t too disturbing (if it’s not traumatic) because we enjoy spontaneous. For others of us, the unexpected is very disturbing because it interrupts our plans, compromises our productivity, distracts our focus and can throw us off balance.
Let’s appreciate that Holy Spirit often works in ways, through events, in conversations and experiences that we neither plan for nor expect. To this end, let’s allow Holy Spirit to keep our hearts and mindsets flexible so we can follow Holy Spirit with lithe agility 🙂
