I read something a few months ago by Dr. Robert Schuller that stuck with me. He said when the idea is not the best, when it’s not right, when it helps you but hurts someone else God will say “No!” When the time is not right God will take his time and wait until the time is right.
The most profound thing I remember him saying was wouldn’t it be a catastrophe if God answered every prayer at the snap of your finger. Then God would become your servant, not your master. Suddenly, God would be working for you instead of you working for God. God’s timing is perfect. Everything happens the way it’s supposed to, when it’s supposed to. If you want it to happen sooner you are asking God to work for you.
No matter what your spiritual believes are you know that you were created for a reason. Most of us search the world over trying to find that reason. We go through life feeling voids and trying to become what God intended us to be. Some people give up and never get it, while others stick with it, grow and embrace their power. Sometimes our actions are distractions and we can’t see what is right in front of us.
Be clear and open to all that you are to learn. Pray first for clarity. This will help you make sure you are praying for the right things. While you are praying for clarity sacrifice something. I believe that suffering is over rated and that we cause our own suffering. However, sacrifice on the other hand is necessary. When you show the Universe that you are willing to work as hard as it does to bring into your life the things you desire the Universe will reward you.
Take care of yourself mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Be ready for the blessings that will come your way. If you pray for something and you are not ready you are going to block it. You are going to miss it. Your brain, heart, body or soul will not allow you to receive it. So while you are praying for the perfect job, lifestyle, mate, child, material possession, idea or whatever. Make sure you are in a position to openly and correctly receive it.
Opportunity may only knock once. If you are like me you are not even waiting for opportunity to knock you got the door open greeting opportunity on the porch asking ,”where have you been”. Saying, “come on, let’s get started”.
When you read poems and stories like Foot Prints and you hear how God is always with you remember that in your prayers. Stop praying for the same thing over and over. Tell God, and then put it out in the Universe by having the right attitude. Just say thank you and live like you got it.
And so it is…
