When need arises

When you are ready to move forward, there is a way. When you are no longer content to stay where you are, a new door opens.

When you are anxious to learn, a teacher appears. When you long to make a meaningful difference, a challenge comes along to supply the opportunity.

When you seek joy, you’ll see the beauty in all that is around you. When you long for love, there will be those with whom you can share it.

When an obstacle blocks your path, the resources and determination to get around it are available to you. When the problems become more pressing, the solutions become more evident.

When time is short, you find a way to become more effective. When need arises, a pathway to satisfy that need also opens up.

As the minutes, the days and the years go by, life will ask much of you. And in answering the call you’ll come to know life’s greatest treasures.

— Ralph Marston
