EMPOWERING Christian Women

is celebrating it's 5th blogoversary!!!


For the 3rd giveaway, ECW is giving away a KINDLE edition of
Life Interrupted: Navigating the Unexpected
Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. They make us want to tell people what we think of them. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves.

The prophet Jonah's existence was interrupted by a call of God that would require a complete change of life. And it scared him enough to make him run in the opposite direction. Yet, what seemed to him to be an unnecessary and useless interruption was really an opportunity for Jonah to be involved in something the likes of which the Old Testament world had never seen before. This interruption was really a divine intervention and it held more adventure and possibility than he could have ever imagined.

We, like Jonah, tend to run from interruptions. When major pains and minor problems cause a hiccup in our carefully calculated plans and goals we head in the opposite direction. Who knows what we might be missing by running from what could very well be God’s means of steering us towards the most magnificent outcome of our lives. Jonah could tell us a story or two. So could you. And so does popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer in this very personal account of opportunities lost and lessons learned—and the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God even when He's going against your grain.

God is directing my steps, by placing my life on hold, while he does what he needs to do. usmlaura@yahoo.com

The latest interruption in my life has given me the opportunity to be still and read the entire bible. The insight gained has afforded me the wisdom to see many aspects of life in a totally different way.

I feel God is interrupting right now as we are in the midst of making some major changes...some that I have really wanted to run away from, but know that I must stick with it.

My life interruption was when my daddy had open heart surgery. My brother had been in a near fatal car accident almost 2 years prior. The interruption came because God had me leave the job I was at so I could help with my dad and brother for a while. Then my dad got better and I got a job taking care of my brother 8 hours a day, usually 7 days a week. If I had stayed where I was I wouldn't get the blessing of helping my brother and him helping me because he is always so happy. barbaraegreer@yahoo.com
