Positioning Yourself In Life

15

I attended a birthday party with a gathering of about 30 people. I sat in the front seat. A lady started distributing food. She started from the back and, unfortunately, it didn’t get to us who were sitting at the front. Another lady started sharing the drinks, she started from the front. But, unfortunately, I had already moved to sit at the back. Again the drink didn’t get to me. I was so furious that I stood up to take my leave. But then I saw three ladies each with a big bowl. This time, I tried to be smart. I sat right in the middle. One of the ladies started the sharing from the front, the second lady started distributing from the back. The two ladies were sharing roasted chicken. When they got to the middle, where I was seated, it got finished again! Feeling so frustrated, I bent my head, putting my face in my hands. But then the third lady tapped me and stretched her bowl for me to pick. Joyfully I stretched and put my hands in the bowl… Guess what was inside the bowl? Toothpicks! Moral: do not try to position yourself in life, allow God to place you in the right place. Otherwise, you may just position yourself only for toothpicks. — Author Unknown Meditation: When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.” – Psalm 27:8 You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
