“Everyday there are opportunities that come your way to love and serve others. Sometimes you see them, acknowledge them, and do something with them. Other times, they float right by you like feathers in the wind.
I desire for you to become so sensitive to the power of my Holy Spirit at work in you that you know my voice and hear me when I speak. When you are alert to my Spirit you will not miss an opportunity when it comes. Set your desires upon me and let your spiritual eyes be open wide to what is happening around you.
If an opportunity comes, but the way ahead seems unclear, stop, pray, and wait for me. You do not have to allow the pressure of doing something in that moment to consume you to the point that you don’t know what comes next. When you’re at peace, I can provide clarity. When you are anxious, you cannot hear my voice.
If things are moving fast and perhaps more than you can handle, remember that I am not in the confusion around you. I am found in the peace that surrounds you. Go with me through each step of your journey today and moment by moment my Spirit, who moves ahead of you, will make the way clear. Opportunities will not pass you by as you move in sync with me.”

- Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27
