I waited 10 years for prayer to be answered
I had completely forgotten about what I had prayed for 10 years ago until Spirit, while in meditation, brought it to mind this week.
Ten years ago, I was invited to accompany a woman to Florida for a week for a personal guided retreat. It was a powerful experience for both of us and I remember even writing a blog about it. It was the desire of my heart to do more personal guided retreats for women. I had been leading women’s retreats for many years, but not one on one like this.
Life had other plans and I went with the flow and forgot about what I had prayed for. This morning I opened my computer and received an email from Abraham. Here it is:
When people ask us how long does it take for something to manifest, we say, “It takes as long as it takes for you to release the resistance. Could be 30 years, could be 40 years, could be 50 years, could be a week. Could be tomorrow afternoon.”
I didn’t think I had any resistance to the idea of leading personal guided retreats for women. Perhaps I did have resistance or maybe it just wasn’t God’s perfect timing.
God is never late or early, but always on TIME. We often have to WAIT, SURRENDER, TRUST and LET GO. If something is meant to be, it will be.
Here it is 10 years later, and I am leading my first guided personal retreat in our home, in April. I am so excited that what was conceived 10 years ago is now being born.
I met Christine last April on an Awakening and Healing retreat that we both participated in on Maui. I completed my 6- month training to become a Licensed teacher of Sacred and Awakening this past January in North Carolina. Christine lives in North Carolina and stopped by to say hello to us.
When she was leaving, I was led to give her my book, “Simply a Woman of Faith.” She thanked me for the book and said, “I would love to come back to Maui someday.” I responded, “Would you like to come to our home for a guided retreat?” She said, “Let me think about it.” When I returned home, I sent her a short video of our lanai overlooking the ocean. That did it as she contacted me the next day and said, “I want to come.”
Christine and I are communicating as to what she would like as part of her retreat. She wants to heal her inner child through play and has invited me to come play with her and pay for me. We will go to a Luau, ferry to Lanai, submarine ride, aquarium and art class. Of course, I said, “YES.”
A few weeks later, I sent Christine a text asking her if she had finished reading my book yet? She texted me back and said, “Right before I received your text, I had just picked up your book to bring it to my bedroom so I wouldn’t forget to bring it with me to Maui.”
She said, “I really feel that you have something to share with me that will impact and transform my life. I know you are the right person that I am to be working with.”
We are all connected and we are all ONE. Christine shared that her grandmother called her ANGEL and that is what my grandmother called me.
Don’t ever give up on your dreams and desires of your heart. They may take some time to MANIFEST as you WAIT, SURRENDER, TRUST and LET GO. What I do know is that God’s plan is perfect and right on TIME.
