I suspect most people have this feeling many times in their life. The feeling comes from having lived a life with a story to tell and others really not caring.
I worked for a company selling laboratory information management systems. I could have designed, developed and marketed the system, but I was hired to sell. No one really cared what I could do, they only wanted me to sell. It was most profitable for the company, but not so much for me. I was a missed opportunity…
There was a time when I was trained how to sell my faith. My teacher didn't appear to really care about how I lived my life or how much I loved Jesus, the person just wanted me to sell my faith. I thought about drawing circles on a white board and inviting all my friends and family over. I didn't because I really didn't feel confident about my ability to sell my faith. I was great at selling other stuff. Just not so good at selling my faith. I was a missed opportunity.
Recently, I've discovered something about myself. I love Jesus, but that is not what I discovered. I discovered I love Jesus for what He did for me, not for what I am expected to do for Him. I am learning to live life according to His terms, not other people's term. I am a much happier person, although still feel much like a missed opportunity. Why is that?
