Step out the door ready to take in the world (As in absorb all of the Lord’s goodness in this world)!
Start my car.
I see our recycling truck coming.
It’s the last can. I’ve put the trash bins in already.
I open my truck door, spring in my steps.
Go & grab the bin like it’s my last mission in life.
I am passing by my truck, which has been warming up.
Ready to go take on my goals for today…
Carefully place my trash bin where it belongs…
Trash bins put back…check …
Turn towards my car, open the door….open the door…open the door…uncheck!
It happens to be locked! A thousand things about myself go through my mind…call my wife to get second alarm… she rushes to my rescue.
Just a small hindrance, I think to myself.
Click on the unlock button in second alarm key…dead battery on second new alarm key.
Call AAA, they come & open the door… now I’m ready for a nap. Go back defeated with a pillow over my head & a million negative things on my mind.
No, I didn’t do that, I seized the moment & am writing this to tell everyone, don’t give up, don’t give in, setbacks will come, & setbacks will go. It’s what you make things out to be in life. God has your backso go & make bad situations regret they ever came your way!
