Opportunities In Problems

“Problems are only opportunities in work clothes”- Henry Kaiser

What if we saw situations as opportunites and not problems?

Opportunites for: us to use our competence, creativity, and faith.

Opportunities for: God to save the day.

Opportunites for: us to help someone else and add value to their lives.

Opportunites for: someone to help us and add value to our lives.

I think in the middle of every problem and defeat, there is an amazing opportunity just waiting to be found.  Just like the delicious tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop, sometimes it takes a bit of work to get there.  But when you do, doesn’t it taste sweet?
