5 Minute Friday – Opportunity

I don’t seem to allow myself the time to blog as much as I would like…but Lisa Jo’s 5 Minute Friday is the perfect way to write a little and get those creative juices flowing!! 🙂  The idea is easy “Set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.”

This Friday’s word is Opportunity…and Go!

Opportunity should be my “word” for 2013…it is what God has opened my eyes to this past year and I am so excited to see what adventure He will be taking me on.

My husband always says we “get” to do things…we don’t have to. We are provided with so many opportunities every day and we are blessed to be a part of them. But at times life takes its toll on us and we can begin to feel burdened and stressed about all the things we have to do.

But if we can look at everything as an opportunity instead, maybe it would feel less like a weight and more like a blessing.

I have the opportunity to be a mother to 4 amazing kids.

I have the opportunity to work with my husband at his new business and learn new tasks.

I have the opportunity to reach out to others and share the Hope that I have found in God’s love for me.

I have the opportunity to be involved in my community and try to make a difference in this world.

Each day presents a new opportunity…..how we see them, how we respond to them, is our choice.

Today I choose to see each new opportunity as a new blessing. How about you?

    I am really blessed by your post! God is really teaching me at the moment on thankfulness and how in being thankful we draw into Him (I am reading Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts).

    We only “get” this one life so our perspective makes such a difference in how we experience it. The best to you in this new year full of opportunity.
