Have you ever hunted for something so elusive that you push on despite the odds? It is hope that drives you, not the thrill of the find, or the number of discovers – the hope and the journey of discovery. I was thinking that most of the ministry that we associate with Jesus was not planned out – it happened on the way to some other place. We see things like that as interruptions but it is actually the interruption that becomes the opportunity. We often get so focused on our plan that we are annoyed by something that is right there in front of us. Jesus and the woman at the well (John 4), Jesus and the woman with a blood disorder (Mark 5), Jesus and the ten lepers (Luke 17) are all examples of amazing relationships – finds – that just happen on the way to somewhere else. Think of the day ahead unfolding – not as a series of tedious or monotonous activities and interruptions but as chances to explore what your Creator might have in mind for you to experience. Ask, “What will come into my path?” You don’t always have to hunt so hard – just be open, aware, listen, sense, watch, and see with new eyes – look with a vision that expects things to happen.
