Have you heard of the film Evan Almighty?
Well it was on the other night and there was a line in it that I loved.
It was when Evans wife was leaving him, because he had a mad idea to build an ark. She bumped into God, who told her that when we ask for something we get the opportunity not necessarily what we ask for.
Evan wanted to spend more time with his family, so God gave him a way to do that by building an Ark together.
How often have we asked for something and then felt let down that it was not given to us?
There are times when we have asked for patience, more money, more time with our family, better health and so many other things that we ask for or visualise or dream of. I’m going to turn it around a bit now and ask you what opportunities you were actually given to then
- show patience
- earn more money
- spend more time doing something together
- respect your body more and get the better health you want
and its actually been you who has missed the opportunity. So instead of being ‘let down’ as you didn’t get what you asked for, start looking at all the opportunities that come your way and grab them to then achieve the dream you have.
In the film, ‘Ark’ also had a meaning and that is you can change the world with one Act of Random Kindness.
SO today don’t miss your opportunities and give an Ark to someone.
