Thoughts from Gloria Gaither at The Heart of Worship weekend

Gloria said she used to think that after searching for God’s will long enough she would one day go around a corner and find a wrapped box with a tag on it that said, “God’s will for Gloria – open.”

Her mom, who was a preacher’s wife, said, “His will isn’t something big, in the future (necessarily), it’s where He’s placed you and what He has you doing.”

Whatever we are doing today, we should be doing to the very best of our ability and for His glory. There are no prestigious jobs in the kingdom!

Gloria said in looking back over her life she thinks she has found God’s will in the “interruptions”. We can plan and plan and plan, but it’s what God throws at us and what we do with it that counts.

Don’t be so busy that we miss God’s interruptions.

I didn't get to attend this years Heart of Worship conference, but I went last year, when she was talking about interruptions. I wrote a blog about it too. It's titled "Interruption Frustration". Check it out!
