We were watching 'Evan Almighty' last night. One particular scene has stuck in my mind. When 'God' is talking to Evans wife in the show, he mentions that "when people pray for patience, does God just grant them patience, or does he give them the opportunity to be patient?
When someone prays for courage, does God grant them courage, or the opportunities to be courageous?
If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm, fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?"
How are the opportunities in your life right now, helping you grow the things that you most want?
Me? I'm finding opportunities to work on maintaining balance and inner peace; as well as opportunities to radiate love.
I am grateful for all of the people in my life and for their part in helping me learn these things.
