Encouragement tip: OPPORTUNITY..

09 June, 2015 2 comments Leave a comment

Today, as I waited in line at Starbucks, I realized the potential for ‘opportunity!’ Opportunity is simply a favorable time or occasion. 

Opportunity knocks. Will you answer the door?

As I stood in line, I made a point to be free of texting & talking on the cell. I heard a lady behind me talking on her cell. When she ended the call, I was able to engage her based on what I overheard. We chatted & learning about her, I was able to give her words of encouragement. Wow, was she excited.  She told me how she had just gone through surgery & this seemed so perfect to her. 

Opportunity knocks. Will you answer the door?

A challenge to you to be present right where you are, so you can take hold of the opportunity right in front of you - the opportunity is there!  Not only will you encourage someone else, but it will get it all over you too! 

BTW: knocking is a a striking motion. It’s deliberate. The opportunity is there for the one who is deliberately wanting to answer the door. 

As we have opportunity, let us do good to all. Gal. 6:10

    WOW! This story, in particular, really got me thinking how many opportunities I’m missing out that the Lord is hoping I take and just don’t.
