Life is not like a box of chocolates… Though I do have to admit the challenges it tosses at me are consuming and sometimes sticky. I always think of “what the good book” says about what God will allow us to bare, and its fairly common mantra from supportive people who don’t really know what else to say. “Just remember, God won’t put more on you than you can’t handle.” I always find that statement amusing.
Why is that? Glad you asked.
Because like I have already mentioned, it is the catch all for not knowing what to say when words seem to be needed in a situation. Though sometimes words are not needed, sometime action is. Sometime there is already that uneasy silent understanding that “That is just fucked up, sorry dude.” I also find it amusing because it assumes that God is doing whatever that is happening directly to you. Guess what he is not. “To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction” Free Will is a bitch. See God created mankind superior to all other spiritual beings because of the Free Will aspect. We choose actions and thus suffer consequences. Though in life someone else’s action or choice most often impacts others. Collateral damage or direct damage it happens a lot. My point is that it is not God challenging you or punishing you. It’s either you are baring the fruit of your actions or someone else’s.
The important thing is not to dwell on the things that are consuming your energy at the time but the future. That time when it will be lessened. Why is that? Simple, because you begin to focus your energy on the positive; that eventuality that this particular challenge will be defeated and overcome. This simple act robs the negative of energy slowly but surely and builds you a foundation on which your path out is laid even if you cannot realize it at this time. That God has given us the power to do.
So when those close to me look at me with pity and confusion and ask what is it they can do, and I answer pray. Well here is why. Pray for the endurance, the fortitude, the wisdom, the strength, to see, to do, and take the right path. With that positive energy plus my own, I will conquer these trials like I have all the others before.
Not because God won’t break me. Not because the Devil won’t tempt me. Not because I won’t stumble and fall on my own. Because I can get up and dust myself off, look in the eyes of chaos and laugh. Knowing there is nothing in this world that can ever rob me of the Truth. That peace which keeps me steadfast in the storm; that spark of the great and divine cosmic creator which I have been endowed with and guides me from one adventure to the next and that is my heart.
Because it is bound to the Truth I know.
Ask, Believe, Receive, Embrace Truth, Enjoy and Give Love
