Obstacle or opportunity?

Sheila Schuller Coleman

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." – Philippians 4:6

Bumps in the road.
Obstacles in the board room.
Lack of funding.
Loss of energy.
Disappointments in treasured relationships.

The positive anticipation that fueled the beginning of the endeavor has been replaced with the painful reality of running smack dab into hard times. Now what? Now is when you dig in your heels. You ask for help with an open mind, but you don't give up! You replay the reason why you wanted to start this in the first place. Was it God's noble dream?

Then, trust God's sovereignty and
his timing. Thank him that he will supply grace to view this obstacle as his opportunity for you to grow, to learn, to be stronger than ever.

Trust God to redirect, if necessary, to see his perfect plan become a positive reality.

Pray the words of Philippians 4:6 in a specifically applied way this week. Example: "Dear God, I'm feeling anxious about…[fill in the source of your anxiety]. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to grow. Please…[fill in specific ways in which you would like to see God work in this situation]. Amen."
