For many years, I have received these words of wisdom from many different sources. In theory, I acknowledged that they made a lot of sense. In practice, not so much! I was far too ambitious and impatient to wait for “God’s time”. I was determined to succeed in spite of God’s slow response to help me actualize my desires. I was working so very hard to achieve my goals, it wasn’t “fair” that I had to wait…and wait…and wait. What was the holdup? I thought I was doing everything correctly in accordance with Divine Law. Why the betrayal? Why not the achievement of my heartfelt goals which I fully intended to use to benefit others and the planet?
There are some lessons that are very difficult to process and accept. It is far better to acknowledge that God knows and guides us along our path to spiritual growth and illumination and that we are given the precise lessons that we need to learn. Darn it! Why must God seemingly interfere with our goals and aspirations – our dreams?
While we are waiting for our plans to actualize and our dreams to come to fruition, we may learn so much about life and ourselves. We may learn to acquire patience, acceptance, forbearance, fortitude, stamina, staying-power, and the ways of the cosmos and evolution. Each day, we have the potential to grow, evolve, benefit and bless others. We evolve in accordance with God’s time, not ours. Embrace this Truth.
