Becoming opportunity takers
I would imagine that the majority of us have a list of things setting on the shelves of our hearts. Things that we want to do. Things that we know we should do. Things God has called us to do. Yet those opportunities and callings that keep knocking on the door of our hearts are held-back by fear.
As I’ve written devotionals and blogs, I’ve learned to disregard irony. There are times in my life when I hear God speak to my heart. Sometimes, however, it takes a second voicing of the same subject to let me know—“Hey, this is it!” Such is the case of this devotional.
First of all, if God tells you to take your hands off the wheel while you’re driving, you may want to question what he’s talking about! The wheel I want to talk to you about is the steering wheel of our lives. You see, each of us has a guide leading the direction of our footsteps and life. It may be you. It may be God. Or, then again, MAYBE ITS YOU!

I would say imagine, but I don’t think that’s necessary. Looking into your own life, you will surely see it. The giant is large, mean, and negative. For the past forty days or so, this nine-foot tall individual has been nagging at you. He has been reminding you of your weaknesses, insulting your identity, making you doubt your faith, and declaring your inability to overcome. This is the giant—rather, the Philistine, David saw on his journey of taking gifts to his brothers at war. David didn’t see Goliath as a giant in comparison with his God. This devotional has the purpose of encouraging you to see your giants the same way.
Using God's Gifts To Their Fullest Potential.
I need to visit livestrong.com. On the website there is an article entitled, “How to Max Out When Lifting Weights.” Although written nearly a year ago, the woman author—yes, I’m that desperate—states a knowledgeable way to get the most possible from weight lifting.
