How will GOD use you today? Are you able to hear His still and small voice? Or do you hear the shouts of your PLANNED LIFE?
GOD often wonderfully surprises us. He regularly uses the unlikely–people and circumstances–to accomplish His purposes. Paul wrote, “But GOD chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; GOD chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. GOD chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things” (I Cor 1:27-28).
GOD can use anyone. If we allow His work to be done in us, we might be surprised at what He can do through US! He desires our willing hearts?
“Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? where will you leave your riches?” ~~ Isaiah 10:1-3
What do you know? What are you led to do today? That life is not fair. Let’s get involved, and help those who live with injustice.
Once opportunity is lost, it won’t be repeated. Each opportunity is a test of the vision of the that person. What happens when you don’t take your opportunities seriously? Who do you trust to fulfill them? GOD…you? Opportunity doesn’t shout, it whispers, and our ears must be attentive. When opportunity knocks, it doesn’t kick down the door, and we had better be alert to open the door. Or, we just might miss it.
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: “It might have been!” ~~J. Greenleaf Whittier
You are not the only person struggling today. Others around you are hurting too. Be extremely attentive to the silent cries of someone close to you who may be drowning in the Ocean of Helplessness. Allow yourself to become their Life-Jacket…of hope.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. –Henry David Thoreau
This week, challenge yourself to be completely present in every moment. Put away your phones, be more attentive to your surroundings, your lover, husband, children, wife and immerse yourself into you to be better for them and yourself.
