The door of opportunity that’s open today, may be shut tomorrow.
I know it’s important that you be on time, but do you have the wisdom to move “in time”? If you haven’t developed that ability to move according to inner guidance, you may have to circle around the mountain twenty more times to reach a desired outcome.
Practice discernment and move when prompted. #Counsel4Living
True Story: The other day leaving a grocery store parking lot, I saw a woman walking along the side of the road. It was 90+ degrees that day. She had a bulging back pack strapped on and a grocery sack in each hand as she proceeded slowly down the rocky road. From behind I could see how exhausted she was. Clearly, she was doing what she had to do with what she had… Her hands and her feet. I respect that.
And there I was, in a luxury vehicle, with the AC on high. Before I knew it, I slammed on the brakes, let the window down and asked her if she could use a ride home?What?!? In 2014 with all the bizarre occurrences among people letting a stranger into your car may not be a good idea, but this decision was bigger than me.
I could hear myself asking her “Could you use a ride home? It’s awfully hot out. ” She examined me searchingly, tentatively. She asked if I was even going her way, as she pointed down the road. She didn’t live far, she didn’t want to put me out. “No problem.” I stated, “I’m going that way too.” She crossed in front of the car and got in the passenger seat. She was nervous and sat very still. I’m sure she was hoping I wasn’t nuts with a sinister plan. I hoped the same about her.
I introduced myself and chatted, she only replied. When we pulled in front of her place she thanked me and I reminded her that God saw her today and will help her if she asks Him. He uses people you know :)
She said, “God Bless You.” I replied “Thank you Ruby.” I drove off smiling. What an interesting opportunity, huh?
