Midweek Morsel: Seizing Opportunities
More and more I’m learning to seize the moment before it disappears. Whether it’s taking time to take photos of beautiful birds at the feeder or putting my work on hold to offer some encouraging words or help, I’m learning to set aside my agenda and give attention to the things God brings before me.
I admit I feel guilty and frustrated many times when I don’t get as much done in a day as I’d hoped to. But we type-A, goal-oriented folks need to learn that God’s plan is sometimes different from ours—and his is better.
Let’s be ready to accept the gifts of potential-packed moments God sends our way. Let’s take time to unwrap them. Let’s seize our opportunities.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
