Worry or Wonder?

So you’ve decided to find a new relationship.  Or forgive an old hurt.  Or create a wonderful event.  Or step-up to greater financial abundance.  Or get a job that makes your heart sing.

You write down your plan, reviewing the steps to be followed.  You go in search of whatever it is.

At what point in the process do you get the Universe (Spirit, the Infinite, the Divine, God, your higher power) involved?

If you were with me last Sunday, you remember I (again) quoted the song from my days in the Lutheran Church:  “oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear; all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer.”

In my life today, thankfully, my experience of prayer is very different, in that I am speaking affirmatively and accepting what I want, rather than begging and beseeching the God out there somewhere to do what I want.

But in my getting the Infinite involved, I am allowing Infinite Intelligence to pave the way, bringing me what I need when I need it.  It might be those strange “coincidences” that happen, or the idea of who to call or where to go.

What if we got Spirit involved from the start, rather than as a last resort?

And what if, rather than worrying IF it will happen, we could stay in wonder about HOW it will happen (recognizing the HOW is not our business, and in absolute conviction, no-question-about-it, that it will)?
