Let me remind you something, in order to seize your opportunities, learn to be calm amid the chaos and hopelessness.
I like the way Stephens puts it,
“When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.”
Once a farmer found an abandoned eagle’s nest and in it was an egg still warm.
He took the egg back to his farm and laid it in the nest of one of his hens. The egg hatched and the baby eagle grew up along with the other chickens.
It pecked about the farmyard, scrabbling for grain. It spent its life within the yard and rarely looked up.
When it was very old, one day it lifted up its head and saw above it a wonderful sight – an eagle soaring high above in the sky.
Looking at it, the old creature sighed and said to itself, “If only I’d been born an eagle”.
My friend let me keep it brief and to the point, the chaos of digging for seed from the ground and the norm of being who you are today, should not stop you from looking up, flapping your wings and flying like the Eagle you are.
Stop writing your obituary – someone once said, “Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.”
Acts 27:13, ” When a gentle south wind began to blow, they saw their opportunity; so they weighed anchor and sailed along the shore of Crete.”
Please read the whole of Acts 27 and see how opportunities present themselves in the midst of chaos and norm.
God Bless You, Keep You and Favour You
