I’m so disaapointed on Saturday night. I watch AFI (one of the popularity and singing contest in Indonesia, taken from La Academia – Mexico) on Indosiar. In that program, Princess Cindy (that’s how Cindy’s fans called her) was eliminated! She was eliminated in a little range of percent! Grrmmbl.. :( I like to see her still singing and fight. I like Cindy because she’s the one who make progress each week, from nothing to something! Different with Tia, Micky, Nia, or Adit who already have many experiences in singing and performing. And that nite I really proud of her. She was very tough! She didnt cry much, and she gives many encouraging words to her friends. She is so incredible!
Well Cindy, do not worry of the elimination, it just one step ahead to enter the big world of star :) You just missed one opportunity to win the contest. Life is full of opportunities. Some will be easy to take advantage of, some will be difficult. But once we let them pass (often in hopes of something better), those opportunities may never again be available.
The same thing is also true of opportunities to serve God. God often opens doors for us ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½ opportunities to speak up for Him, opportunities to minister to someone who is hurting or in need, opportunities to make an influence on the world around us. If we allow them to pass by (perhaps because we are waiting for something easier to come along), we may miss out on them altogether.
Continue praying, keeping alert, and always thanking God. Also pray for us that God will give us an opportunity to tell people his message. (Colossians 4:2-3a NCV)
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)
May you take advantage of the doors God opens for you this day!
