Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be the glory! Ephesians 3:20-21

How do I handle interruptions?

Today I was studying Genesis 24 (by way Kay Arthurs Teach Me Yours Ways) 
I asked myself, "So what can I learn from Rebekah's welcome to Abraham's servant"? 
1. She wasn't afraid of hard work
2. She didn't complain or make excuses
3. She didn't gripe about the interruption of her day
I am sure it took awhile to water all those camels.  The internet says that a camel can drink up to 25 gallons of water at a time, there were 10 camels

I get mad when I've made a schedule and something/someone interrupts me.  
Just today before doing this study I made a schedule of what I think are the most important things to get done each day.  I know me...I will get upset when I can't get to all the things I put on my list.  So a lot of times I just don't make a list and then of course I end up not getting things done.   Catch 22......

So since I've made my list then, "How am I going to handle the interruptions that will CERTAINLY come"?  Rebekah handled it with Grace and maturity AND she didn't miss out the BLESSING! 
Am I going to miss out on a blessing because I don't want to be interrupted?  How am I going to react?  Will I react with Grace and Maturity or will I be a self-centered person with her own agenda of things of importance and miss a blessing?   

I am still trying to track my food but not doing too well.  I have lost a couple of the pounds that I gained over Christmas.  God is working on me in some emotional areas concerning food and I don't have a lot of clarity on that yet.  More to come on that....
