Man's Extremity Is God's Opportunity

Desperate times call for desperate actions! Heheh, actually not that dramatic, I'm just exaggerating. :)

My colleague and I have a sales appointment tonight. As she's busy attending to other urgent stuff and couldn't prepare enough for the presentation, she has roped me in to be her side-kick.

When I heard that, I quickly launched into action, assembled some materials etc. but before I could do anything, I came down with a bout of food poisoning. For hours, I was giddy, burped excessively, threw up and my stomach felt totally 'off'. The discomfort affected my sleep badly, I was tossing and turning throughout the night and had half the mind to call it off. Up till 3 a.m. I was still sure that I wouldn't be able to do it cos I would be weak and inept the next day...

Then something strange happened. Suddenly, lots of inspirations came in, about a new approach, presenting differently. I shared these ideas with my colleague this morning and she's gamed enough to try it. Man's extremity is God's opportunity. Since I can't do it my way, and my colleague can't do it her way, then let us let God help us do it His way.

I shall rest as much as possible today, do some basic preparation, not the thorough one that I'm used to, and see what happens tonight.

Pray for me. I hope I have something interesting to share with you in my next post. :)

I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for sharing this. It's a reminder for me to let God help. Sometimes we human are so stubborn and rely too much in ourselves, when at the end, it's God's way.
