What? Who? I know I heard something. It was probably the T.V. I thought. But wait, The T.V. isn't even on.
Now I know I heard someone knocking. I'm not crazy!
There it is again! "GO AWAY!" I'm tired. "Don't they know I just want to be left alone?"
I reluctantly drag my weary butt over to the door and open it. "Yes?" No one's there. I peek my head out the door and see if there are some neighborhood kids playing a prank on me.
Now I know I'm not crazy. There was a knocking at my door.
After a shrug of the shoulders and a gentle gesture at the wind, I closed the door and went back to my couch. It only took a few minutes for me to realize, it was opportunity knocking and my procrastination to answer the door lost me the chance of a lifetime.
You know those people that ALWAYS seem to be in the right place at the right time? Come on, you know at least one of them. The ones you secretly want to fall on their face at least once in your life.
I know it's not very christian to think that way, but it's human nature to feel a little envious from time to time.
How would you like someone else to think that way about you? After all, your friends all think your crazy for doing "that thing" as they call it.
Won't they be green with jealousy when your waving goodbye to them as you go on your 4th vacation of the year.
Or you pull up in the 2nd new car and hand over the keys to your spouse as a birthday present.
Ohh yea! It can happen! It will happen! If you want it to that is.
Well, do you?
Being at the right place at the right time is such an old saying, but it's so true. When Opportunity knocks, you have to be ready to open the door and welcome it with open arms.
That is, if you recognize it as opportunity...
Keep an ever watchful eye open for the opportunity of a lifetime. It could be right around the corner walking toward your door right now.
Wait! I think I hear something....
