We would like to think that we know. We would like to think that our plans are wise and thoughtful and that we are in control of what will happen. We would love to believe that "better" and "more" is right around the corner. We are smart so we know ...? The truth is that we really don't know much. We should know that the world is not predictable and neither is our life. This is why we need to take advantage of the opportunities right in front of us. We may hope that the same opportunity or a better one may come late on, when it is more convenient for us but we never know.
Lord, help me to be aware of the countless opportunities in front of me today.
