Delayed but Not Denied

August 10, 2015

Problems will come—this is certain, but what good will it do to worry? We cannot change our day-to-day situations by adding worry to them. Worry will only increase the negativity already given to the situation. I believe that some trials and tribulations come to us as a test of our faith with delays, demands, and with our money. We might find that it seems like all is going right in our world, and then suddenly the water heater has burned out, which forces our hand into shallow pockets. We don’t really want to spend the money because we say we don’t really have it at the time, but I believe what we are truly saying is that we fear that we will not get it back, and then some if we would but have mustard seed faith. If we would work from a higher vibratory level of the power of positive thinking, we could change our plight. After all, perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.

Let’s say you have been house hunting for over a year and you still have not found the perfect fit. You feel like throwing the towel in and consigning to the fact that your dream home plans are never going to happen. Instead, why not look at it as if the dream home is simply being delayed—with a purpose. Maybe, just maybe, the universe is protecting you from some greater calamity in the wrong home purchase, like the roof is bad, or the house is built over a sink hole. Why not believe that the universe will send you that perfect fit home within the right time, and this is only a delay?

We demand so many things in life that we want for the good ourselves, families and friends alike, but it is not solely up to us to make it happen. We must go by intuition, we must believe, we must pray to the force that created us. So the next time you face a problem in life—big or small—go ahead and turn the issue around with that perpetual optimism in knowing that you have not been denied the thing you are believing for . . . you have only been delayed.
