Isn’t it easy to be grateful when everything is flowing and you are manifesting easily and effortlessly? I love when I am in the state of grace and trusting everything is in perfect and right order. This is what I strive for every day, but unfortunately; it’s not always like that.
What happens when things are not going the way you want them to go? They may not be happening fast enough, you are not making the money you need or there are problems with your children or family members. You may have lost your job or hate your job and living in dread every day. This is life school and we are always learning and growing, right? The challenges or opportunities we encounter cause us to grow, ask for help and deepen our faith in a Power greater than ourselves.
I teach about faith and being in the hallway where one door has closed and the other hasn’t opened yet. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like being in the hallway. I may complain, kick, scream and try to get the door to open – to no avail. I must surrender and accept “what is” if I want peace while I am waiting for the next door to open. If I have asked for guidance and prayed to my higher power for help, I trust that everything is happening for a reason and I am exactly where I need to be.
It’s in the hallway that your faith muscles grow and get stronger. You cannot see what’s ahead and you have to trust what you cannot see and that’s scary sometimes. Isn’t that what faith is all about? Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.
Although many doors have opened for me, there are doors that haven’t opened yet (and I don’t understand why because I am doing everything I know to do) and I am in the hallway. My faith muscles are getting stronger as I surrender to “what is”, trust the process, let go of anger, trust God and make a conscious effort to be grateful for everything in my life exactly the way it is.
Whoever said the spiritual life would be easy? It’s a constant letting go, surrendering , accepting “what is” and remembering that you are one with God and are loved unconditionally just the way you are.
Are you in the hallway of your life? Today, I invite you to be grateful for exactly where you are and to trust that everything is happening for a reason and all is well.
