A Missed Opportunity

Life is full of opportunities. Some are hard to see, and we miss them. Others are very obvious.The Lord has given me an OBVIOUS opportunity to go to Japan and serve the Lord there, but what about those daily opportunities that are harder to see and that often pass by so quickly I don’t even notice them?Mark Twain said “I was seldom able to see an opportunity until it had ceased to be one.”
I can definitely relate to this problem! Just this week, while camping with my husband’s family, I saw a woman walking a great dane through the camp site. I struck up a conversation with her simply wanting to know a little about her dog, but before I knew it, we were talking about the most random things. We finished our conversation, and I went to join the family to eat as she went back to her campsite. That was when I realized that God had opened a door for me to witness, and I simply talked about her dog. I missed that wonderful opportunity!!!

I began to think about how many opportunities like that I face each day- opportunities to praise God and opportunities to share His love with others. I remember how Jesus took that time at the well to speak with the Samaritan woman in John 4. He sought an opportunity to speak with her, not about the water she would draw for him but about the living water that He could give her.

Who will I meet today? Is there someone that God will put in my path so that I may speak to them of His mercy and grace? I don’t want to miss this kind of opportunity again!

Taking the Message,
