Seeing opportunity

Recognising opportunities for spiritual growth when God offers them takes a bit of discernment. These opportunities so often appear at the wrong time, often in a form that does not fit with my plans. Also in the mix of my life are opportunities which seem God sent but turn out not to be so. Peace of mind and heart is hard-won at such times. Taking up an opportunity might be challenging to those with whom I live and work, causing not peace but disruption. Seeing Jesus Christ’s promise of peace in such disruption is difficult, yet it is there for me to receive if I am doing God’s will. Do I need guidance to help me make choices which keep me true to myself and God’s plan for my life?
