Five Minute Friday~~Opportunity01/04/2013 - Author: Jennifer - 16 Comments
Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…
The word can go down so many trails. You can have an opportunity to help others, to make friends, to go out of your comfort zone, but ignore them. Maybe it is fear, anger, resentment or knowing someone can do it better, so you say no.
You can also do bad–opportunity arrives to do bad, seek revenge. Those are the opportunities to pass up.
The opportunities to not pass up–the ones where you can serve. Ask forgiveness. Offer grace.
The opportunities I struggle with–the ones others get that I want. Lessons learned that I needed to be taught. If I open myself to what God wants to teach me, then jealousy can turn into gratefulness and happiness.
Those are the opportunities I can’t pass up.
