Three times i sounded the warning, "only 5 minutes left to check out...", then 2 minutes, and 1. Right on time, Mrs. Fields returned to collect her class from library. Jill popped up from the computer to look for a book, only to be told she'd miss the opportunity to check out. Her class had another activity to attend, and she'd have to return later.
Missed opportunities... we all have them. At times we become so wrapped up in our own agenda, we miss wonderful opportunities God has sprinkled around us. If only we'd stop and listen.
Father, please pass me a Q-tip; i want to always hear You. Life is a mission field, and we are surrounded by others in need... in need of a gentle touch, a smile, a caring voice, a helping hand. I don't want to miss the chance to make a difference in someone's life for You.
we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it!
