2021 is finally upon us and as last year came to a close I couldn’t help but notice how many people were wishing good riddance to 2020. Granted last year brought about devastation the likes of which we have never seen. Yet last year much like every year before and after it shared the same components.
Each year presents 365 opportunities (aka days) comprising 24 mini opportunities (aka hours) also comprising 60 sub opportunities (aka minutes). Whether you use these opportunities to advance your career, help a friend or rebuild your community, the choice is yours. Remember, not taking advantage of every opportunity is also a choice.
As sure as the sun sets each year will bring its fair share of adversities and trials. There will always be those that find opportunities within the struggle and those that struggle to find opportunity. Perspective is a choice; your choice.
The Apostle Paul once wrote that … “we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance and perseverance produces character and character brings about hope…” Where there is hope my friends, there is also love and love allows us to see the good in every opportunity.
So as we step into this new year, my hope is that you will squeeze every opportunity out of every second that you’re blessed enough to have breath.
