Things Can Change in a Heartbeat

Have you ever been going along and WHAM! Everything suddenly changes. 

This is what happened to us this weekend. We were actually driving a church function with some friends, when my husband received a phone call that his step-dad had a heart attack. They were life-watching him to the town we were driving to! Now, thankfully, he is doing well and should be released to go home by Thursday of this week. 

In a heartbeat...our plans were changed...for several days. 

Our plans weren't the only ones changed and they most definitely weren't the most important.

My father-in-law's plans changed. He didn't anticipate being in the hospital.

My mother-in-law's plans changed. She didn't plan to take time off work or spend money to stay out of town for a week.

The Dr.'s plans changed. He now had to make room in his schedule for another patient.

Have you ever thought about that? 
How one minor or major event can set off a chain of changed plans?

We can look at changes as interruptions or welcome events.

"but we will all be changed--in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
I Corinthians 15:51-52

You know, there will come a day when all our plans will change. 
In the twinkling of an eye, in a heartbeat...

Have you made plans for that welcome event?
Don't allow Christ's return to be an interruption!

First, ugh, bad friend, didn't know his step-dad had a heart attack! So glad to hear he's doing better! Second, YUP, I know the "plans change" thing. Our plans, of course, have changed for the better but those weren't the plans until God laid it on my heart. Complete 360! :)
