MAKE THAT CHANGE!
I am almost sure you would have heard today’s story, but it came to my mind to share the same with you again as I encourage you to Make that change .
Here is the story :-
“Once, there was an older man, who was broke, living in a tiny house off $99 social security cheque and at the age of 65 he decided things had to change. He thought about what he had to offer and remembered his friend’s continued appreciation of his chicken recipe. He decided to use this platform to create his change.
After leaving Kentucky, he traveled to different states to try to sell his recipe. He told the restaurant owners of his mouthwatering chicken recipe which he offered for free, just asking for a small percentage on the items sold. Unfortunately, he kept getting NO as response. He heard NO over 1000 times. Even after all of those rejections he still believed his chicken recipe was something special.
With one success on the 1009th attempt, Colonel Hartland Sanders Kentucky Fried chicken was born and he changed the way Americans eat chicken.
The question is, what if he chose to stop because he was old, or because of the NOs? He kept at the quest for change and that reminded me of one of my favourite scriptures
“…..All the days of my hard service I will wait, Till my change comes.” Job 14:14 (You can read the NLT version here)
Just like Job mentioned above, there may be many days of hard service, but wait till your change comes. God has designed great days ahead of you, never allow the delays or NOs stop you. So ensure you Make that Change.
