Today's Prompt: OPPORTUNITY
Every year brings the turning of the page, blank, fresh, like a new snowfall with no footprints. I love the new year. It feels like a chance to start over.
I have the OPPORTUNITY to repaint my entryway after an explosive temper took out the bulletin board that had been there for decades...leaving a beautiful brown box on the white-ish wall. I could be mad about the destruction but I'm looking at it as an opportunity to change something that probably could stand a little freshening up.
I pray that I can use that set of eyes this year...looking for opportunities rather than seeing the disappointment, the hurt, the failure.
I want to see opportunity for new friendships, new ideas, new ___________________. I don't even know yet.
If it isn't working KEEP MOVING FORWARD...bring along some grace and see the opportunity for Jesus to pour through the situation.
