“This is a completely thankless thing to say but the interruptions around this place drive me absolutely crazy”, I complain to my boss.
With a frazzled expression, she nods in agreement.
We both know it’s and important part of our day, an imperative piece of our business. But my goodness. Sometimes, it’s just hard to stop the forward motion of progress.
I wake each day with a to do list. Carefully planned. Well thought out. A little whitespace for error.
And I really only feel good about the day when every item on my list is crossed off.
But lately, I have been challenged to live a little differently. I have asked God to carry the whitespace of my day in his hands. I have asked him to condition me for flexibility.
Only then can I appreciate interruption. Only then can I be in the moment with the person who has crossed my path. Only then can I live in the present moment, trusting God to cover every other detail of my life.
Lord, today, I commit the whitespace of my day only to you.
