A story about a Man and his Faith
As the flood waters rose, his neighbors told him, “You have to leave, the flood is going to wash everything away.”
Calmly, the man replied, “It’s not a problem, God will save me.”
As the waters continued to rise to the second floor of the man’s house, a boat came by with rescuers. They said, “Quickly, get in, the flood is going to wash everything away.”
Again the man replied, “It’s not a problem, God will save me.”
As the flood worsened, the man was forced to climb onto the roof of his home. A helicopter came, threw down a ladder and the rescuers said, “Climb up. The flood is about to wash everything away.”
One more time, the man said, “It’s not a problem, God will save me.”
Finally, the flood washed everything away, and sadly the man drowned.
When he reached heaven, he saw God. With anger he asked was, “God, I was so certain you would save me, why didn’t you save me?”, God said to the man, “I did everything I could, I sent neighbors, a boat and a helicopter to save you. You refused to see my helping hand”
Are you working on gaining the awareness to consciously ‘see’ the GOD opportunities that are in your life at this very moment? Or are you ‘playing it safe’ and doing the same things you have always done in life and getting the same results you’ve always gotten?
Will you be like the man in the flood who simply could not ‘see’ the life-changing GOD opportunities in front of him? Or are you ready to begin looking with ‘a new set of eyes’ at your life and uncover the many GOD opportunities that are constantly presenting themselves? Opportunity is always present, at all times, in everyone’s life. It’s up to you to look for it, recognize it, and act on it. GOD Opportunities are always present for people who decide to search ALL areas of their life for ideas that may improve the lives of themselves and others. Think about that for a moment. In every area of your present life including your recovery, faith, relationships, work, likes, and even dislikes, there are unseen powerful GOD opportunities available to you at all times!
Don’t be like the man in the flood. Don’t let life changing GOD opportunities pass you by you. Look for them, take advantage of these hidden opportunities presented to you in your life. TAKE ACTION NOW. Begin to ask yourself questions about areas of your life that you have never pondered before.
What things are going on in your life right now that you’re not happy with and what can you do to make your life better?
What good things are going on in your life right now and how can you use this gratitude to help someone else?
How can I use my passions and interests to improve my life and the lives of others?
Are you setting aside time to search for and discover hidden opportunities that are in your life at this very moment?, Or are you plopped in front of the TV each night, sleeping the day away, or resigned to the fact that your life ‘is what it is’ and it isn’t going to get any better? What changes will you make?
