The Lord says, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways 
and my thoughts than your thoughts.” - Isaiah 55:9 (NIV)

Getting things done gives me a sense of satisfaction, making me feel productive and complete. But interruptions often throw myplans off track: a family member needing help, a clerk

Today's Prayer
Help us respond to your call to serve, Lord, and remind us that interruptions can bring us closer to you. Give us faith to trust in your plans and provision. Amen.
