Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught or for that matter, anything more exciting than a yarn about what almost happened! A part of us invests all the exciting possibilities in the lost chance, but it is possible to be so busy thinking about the fish that got away we don’t see the opportunity that is waiting right now.
The Bible says there is a time for every purpose under heaven. The purpose of life is to be fully alive to the divine possibility right in front of us, here and now!
FROM THE BIBLE
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
Look back, I see opportunities I missed; friends I ignored; resources that remained untouched. I ask you to open my eyes to what you have for me to do in each new day! Thank you for the joy that comes as my life is aligned with yours.
