“…don’t sit around waiting for the phone to ring….instead…call them.

Get involved…..at work, romance, career path, sports, church, improved relationship with God…..all of these take effort and “involvement.”  Things don’t happen until we get involved.  Or, if they do happen, then we stand a better chance of being happy with the results if we are contributing to the results; instead of letting the chips fall where they may.  We have to be the aggressor in life; rather it involves work, play, social, or family.  Rarely do people chase us down wanting us to “get involved.”  If we all were star athletes, then maybe they’d chase us down, but I doubt that is the case here.  (Someone, please, let me know if there’s any star athletes reading BrOOKS-of-WISDOM).  I’ve always been the aggressor in every aspect of my life…. Maybe a tad bit less as I approach the ¾ mark.  I’d still be single… I’m sure.  I fact, I’ve only had “one” individual/company who chased me down… all the rest in my career…well, I chased them all down.  I encourage you…. Decide what you want in life, rather it’s your career, your high-school sweetheart, or that “pie-in-the-sky” job that you’ve coveted all your life….but, go for it.  There is “one area” in your life where you don’t have to be the aggressor, and that is where God seeks us.  In Luke 19:10, Jesus said, “…the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost.” Just before dying, Jesus told his closest followers, during the Last Supper, in John 15:16,  “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”  Blessings… cjlb …6/27/14.
