Opportunities are usually described as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.

From 2 Corinthians 9:15:  “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!”

Steven Spielberg Quotes

The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.

You never really know how good of a leader you are until there is something there to lead us to, toward or through or to overcome.

Swing Away

Life’s game passing by

Parked on lonely bench

Watching each inning

From this dugout’s trench

 

Endless time marching

Week following week

Absent from big plays

Life looking more bleak

 

Dreaming great moments

Where are they hiding?

Just needing one chance

Few hopes backsliding

 

Opportunity!

Finally knocking

Time to really shine

Eagerness rocking

 

Now just swing away

Life’s batter’s box calls

Confidence beaming

Stepping in, “Play ball!” 

  

In the film, “The Natural,” starring Robert Redford, Roy Hobbs finally gets his big chance to step into the batter’s box.  Here is the scene from the film.  Indeed, life and baseball find ways to complement each other.

Opportunity Knocks

From Psalm 23:1-3:  The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters; He restores my soul.  He leads me in right paths for His name’s sake.”

Walking lost in the still darkness of night

Realizing the Lord delivers His might

 

Knocking at the door of life, He arrives

Granting a safe place, helps us to survive

 

Finding lasting peace in His Holy verse

Quenching our parched thirst, like a caring nurse

 

Coming with righteousness, Christ our Shepherd

Refueling us today, always treasured

 

Re-energizing empty hearts and souls

Blowing away blackest clouds, God controls

 

Lighting our way, God’s eternal love shines

Breathing His Word, offering faithful signs

 

Facing life’s challenges, Christ walks with us

Giving Grace, His way never brings a fuss

 

Guiding us to the Promised Land, Christ leads

Saving us from sin, from a Cross which bleeds

Life is a glorious opportunity.

From Colossians 4:2-5:  “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.  At the same time pray for us as well that God will open to us a door to the word, that we may declare the mystery of Christ, for which I am in prison, so that I may reveal it clearly, as I should.  Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time.”
