What’s On The Other Side of Your ‘Opportunity’?

I Don’t Have A Say in Every Factor That Influences My Opportunities, But I Do Have a Say in A Great Number of Them

In Most Opportunities, God Is Incognito

Our Incognito God Works In The Intersections of Our Lives

Opportunities Are Often Disguised As Interruptions

Opportunities Are Not Without Obstacles
