Psa. 112 : 4 (KJV) Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
Each time you are faced with a ‘dead end’ at work, in business or in life generally, there are three options:
1. Turn back
2. Stay there (Break down, lament, cry, gather pity parties and make an abode there.)
3. Keep moving and pressing on against the odds.
Surely, a way always appears with the third option!
Mary Kay Ash, a 20th century American businesswoman and founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics once said,
For every failure, there’s an alternative course of action. You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.
One of the greatest lessons I have learnt in life, my work life especially, is this: Even though things may not turn out exactly as planned or as I would have loved, when faced with a paralyzing situation, there is ALWAYS a way forward!
Lord, Thank You because there is no such thing as a dead end. The forces of life mustn’t be strong enough to cage me in.
Open my eyes to see beyond this dead end and as I keep pushing in the right places, let new ways open up before me according to Your promises. Amen! (*1)
