We can miss out on so much because of indecision. We have the opportunity to do something, but rather than just trying it and seeing if it works out, we put off making a decision until the opportunity passes and then lamely say, “guess it wasn’t meant to be”.
Um, pardon me, but that’s not the way it works. If an opportunity presents itself and you don’t act on it or try it, it’s your fault if what you want doesn’t pan out. Opportunity isn’t some perfect dream that lands in your lap, it’s making hard decisions and working towards something. It’s taking the leap of faith even though you don’t know all the cards that are dealt.
Opportunity is choosing to live today, making choices today, that affect your future, not waiting for something to fall in your lap, because that will never happen.
Christian drive me the most nuts when it comes to that. God puts these huge dreams in people’s hearts and rather than using them they use the most bull crap excuse in the world, “I need to hear from the Lord on whether I should.” BULL. This is the lamest excuse ever for “I don’t have the guts to do it.”
Unless it’s something that is just a blatant sin, if God put it in you to do, then quit beating around the freaking bush and do it. Because if you don’t, He’s going to find someone else with the guts to do it.
