It's the first Friday of 2013! That means it's time for Five Minute Friday! Did you miss it? I did! My mind is still a jumbled mess, but it felt good to sit down and write... Hope it makes sense! :)
You really should join this wonderful community of encouragers. I had so much fun chatting on twitter for a half hour before I went to bed. Such a blessing to connect with the lovely #FMFParty friends... some I was able to meet at Allume, some I'm still waiting to meet in real life!
So it's time to write for FIVE MINUTES. Get the whole scoop over here at Lisa-Jo's, and then join in!
Today's Prompt: Opportunity
Each day is a new opportunity, to put behind and forget the mistakes of yesterday, to fall forward into grace and new mercies. But it is not just every morning. It's every moment of the day. Each moment is a fork in the road and an opportunity to show the love of Christ, to make the most of my time, to bring glory to God's name.
My life is a canvas of opportunities, with God drawing, painting, leading, correcting always with grace. I don't know what comes next. I just know that I have a lot of opportunities, a lot of dreams (you might even be tired of hearing all about them). I do a lot of thinking, a lot of talking, now I want to take some action.
Don't miss these opportunities. A chance to connect with friends. An opportunity to bless with my writing. A prompt to send some real (handmade) mail to encourage someone. A chance to give grace to my kids. The moment I choose to serve my husband. Giving, praying, loving, caring.
God gives so many opportunities, I want my eyes to be wide open to them. To know that "this is not an interruption, this is an opportunity." To be filled with the Spirit from this day forward.
no turning back.
What opportunities are you facing today?
