Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Priscilla Shirer is a Bible teacher who enjoys bringing the stories of Scripture to life. She is also the author of popular books including One in a Million, A Jewel in His Crown, and Discerning the Voice of God. Priscilla is married to her best friend Jerry with whom she founded Going Beyond Ministries. And while Priscilla loves ministry, she prioritizes her role as wife and mother. Between writing and studying, she spends the majority of her time cleaning up after their three fabulous sons.

About the Book

What if Jonah had seen God's interruption for what it truly was - a divine intervention that held more adventure and possibility than any other thing he could be doing at the time? What could've felt any better than being directly in the center of God's will?

Yet we play it that same way - always running from major pains and minor problems that just don't seem to suit us at the moment. Who knows what we're missing by being so interruption avoidant? In this very personal accout of opportunities lost and lessons learned, popular conference speaker and author Priscilla Shirer shows how to embrace the amazing freedom and fulfillment that comes from going with God even when He's going against your grain.

    Priscilla takes the book of Jonah and applies the teaching to real life living. I had no idea there was so much to learn from Jonah. She uses real life illustrations to help bring her point home. Loved it!

    Unexpected interruptions in life and schedules...truly the story of my life.

    In writing Life Interrupted: Navigating the Unexpected, Priscilla Shirer has practically written much of the story of my life. And she has never even met me! How is this?! Apparently my life situations and struggles are not quite as unique as I once thought. What a comforting realization.

    Of all of the books I have read in the past few months, I would say this one speaks most specifically to me. As a matter of fact, I believe that you may discover the same for yourself if you so choose to venture into the waters of Jonah's story as told by Priscilla.

    Jonah's story may be a bit familiar to most who have read the Bible or even heard Bible stories throughout their life. However, I have never read nor thought of Jonah's story in quite the way Priscilla Shirer presents it in Life Interrupted. For probably the first time ever, I actually found myself identifying with Jonah rather than judging him.

    Have unexpected, even unwanted interruptions come your way causing your life course to be frustratingly altered?

    Have you had a very large virtual fish swallow you in order to force you back on a path or mission you were trying to avoid and even run from?

    Then I share with you something Priscilla says on this matter,

    "_No matter how remote and relaxing, nothing fills the void of the abandoned purpose. Nothing feels the same anymore when you're running from God."

    Have you made a mess of your life in the past?

    Then, I echo a quote Priscilla shares by a lady named Carol Kent when she says,

    "My mess has become my greatest message."

    If you can say yes to any or all of the above, you may identify with Jonah more than you think. And you will definitely identify with Life Interrupted.

    Additionally, I would like to leave you with an encouraging and true reminder from Priscilla,

    "When we respond to our second chances by obeying Him with new determination, entirety, and abandon, His Word and work can do amazing things through us, enough to spill over into second chances for lots of others."
