i returned and saw under the sun that -
the race is not to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong,
nor bread to the wise,
nor riches to men of understanding.
nor favour to men of skill;
but time and chance happen to them all.
saw this verse scribbled on one of the papers i pinned up against my desk wall. it's been there for so long i kind of forgot it exists, but it sure serves as a great form of encouragement each time i notice it again.
it's never about how hard i should work, how smart i am, or whose good boots i should get into - it's simply about working restfully through His grace, wisdom and favour to find myself being placed at the right place at the right time, to say the right things to the right people and be blessed as a result! =)
