Opportunity Knocks

The Watered Soul: Opportunity Knocks

Apr 18, 2011

Opportunity Knocks

Did you wake up this morning? Are you able to read this post? (Guess so huh) With the rising of the day came a brand new opportunity. Doesn’t matter if you are going to the same old job, coming home to the same family, or being challenged by the same old situation. You have been granted an opportunity. An opportunity to  grow, learn, think or act differently. Who knows if the opportunity will come to you again. What will you do with it?

“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations” – Charles R. Swindoll

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more”- Anthony Robbins

“Most people don't recognize opportunity when it comes, because it's usually dressed in overalls and looks a lot like work.”-Thomas Alva Edison

"Four things come not back: The spoken word, The sped arrow, The past life, The neglected opportunity."Arabian Proverb

Dearest Wanda,

Wisdom is what is shared in this message and I thank you! I pray each day that the LIFE God has given to me I would use for His glory.

You're a blessing! Blessed Holy Week to you and your family.

Much love,
Lisa

I think I'll follow the teaching of an old faithful: Invest in the human soul. - Mary Bethune

This is a good week to invest in the soul, in our soul and in the souls of others.

This posting brought back to me my Saturday meditations (Luke 16:19-31). We need to LISTEN to the soul cries and help others while we have the OPPORTUNITY:


27-28. "The rich man said, 'Then let me ask you, Father: Send him to the house of my father where I have five brothers, so he can tell them the score and warn them so they won't end up here in this place of torment.'

29. "Abraham answered, 'They have Moses and the Prophets to tell them the score. Let them listen to them.'

30. "'I know, Father Abraham,' he said, 'but they're not listening. If someone came back to them from the dead, they would change their ways.'

31. "Abraham replied, 'If they won't listen to Moses and the Prophets, they're not going to be convinced by someone who rises from the dead.'"

So very true! Everyday we are given opportunities - what am I doing with the them? Definitely something to think about.

Great minds think alike. I love your thoughts on opportunity. I am learning to change my perspective and really pay more attention to the opportunities that each new day affords me.

Paul told the Ephesians to buy up or redeem time, because we don't know how much we have. We need to use every opportunity for the glory of God.

I like this one, like a new door to open, we have to be aware, observe and then be open to opportunity~
I'm on the look out today! ;-D

We miss opportunities because we tend to think there will be more in the future..big mistake.

Yep, every day there are new possibilities. You don't know what might happen. Keep your eyes open and look for it though, or it might pass you by. Sometimes it's too shy to knock.
