Sometimes I get really frustrated with God. How is it that I can work so hard at something, KNOW what it is I need to do, FEEL like I am doing it.......PRAY, and PRAY and PRAY on it......and retrieve nothing in return?
Then I hear Garth Brooks in my head..”sometimes God’s greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers.” As I struggle to keep my head above water in a most challenging and difficult economy, I find myself asking questions like “is this what God/Spirit wants for me?” Some days I am elated for the simple things that bring me joy. Then I get another bill, or another debt collector, or another one of life's challenges on my doorstep, and I think "God cant possible want this for me!” And off I go into my broken record, starting the pattern of hopelessness again!
How many of you can relate to this story? Despite these many challenges, I see the divine all around me. And if you look, you will too. A dear friend reminded me to ALLOW God’s greatest good into my life. Frustration and constriction never gets you anywhere she screeched! And she is right, Angels are all around us, open yourself up to it, trust and believe. More importantly, PAY ATTENTION. Remember my dear friends, angels come in many forms.......mine came in the form of an HVAC repair man this morning that had to remind me that a smooth sea never makes a skillful sailor.
Love and light
