We are in the middle of a Bible conference at church this week (well, until Wednesday) and what a blessing the preaching has been for me. Just a few notes to myself from last night –
Opportunity – each of us is given opportunity….every day. TODAY I have an opportunity to live for the Lord, to seek to know Him more and to be faithful with all that He has entrusted to me. Each day…as well as each “stage” of life…I want to purposefully use the opportunity I have. Whether a busy stay at home mom with three preschoolers, a new empty nester or perhaps, some day, even a widowed senior…there is no need to wait until a “better time” but, instead, look for the opportunities that are mine right now.
I also want to be careful not to make excuse (also known as whining) for not using the opportunity of today. No matter my age, my situation, my circumstance or any other reason, right now is the best opportunity I have – there is no promise of a better time down the road and I will never have the chance of yesterday again. I want to be faithful today.
I know these notes have really been for myself and I did not elaborate or fully explain them – but I pray that your today will be a great day….and that I will intentionally seek the opportunities that Christ has given to me this day and will use today to honor Him.
