Blessings

“The days go by and it may seem that the problem has not been resolved, but then you realize that what you saw as a problem was a blessing, a blessing that you did not understand at the beginning.  It may have bothered you just as it bothers a child when a loving mother gives medicine that may taste bitter but is good for health.”  Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I

Our problems are not always to be lamented.  They may be blessings.  If we remember that the problem and solution are always found together (a tenet of A Course in Miracles), we will ask that the solution be shown to us, and we will be encouraged to ask, time and again, in the future.  When problems come up, we need to realize that, blessing or not, God has allowed it, though He did not cause it.  This allowing is one of the hardest things we have to accept.  But it is the way out of every quandary.

God means us well, but our free will makes for difficulties in our world.  And free will is one of our greatest blessings!  But we don’t know how to use it now, and so we, and others, suffer.  God would not be doing us a favor if he revoked free will when things get tough.  And this is something He understands completely.  He will never revoke free will.

Like medicine that is bitter, our blessings are not always recognized.  Ask to see the better part of any lesson that seems difficult in our world.  Ask to be shown the blessing.

And it will be so.

    Our scope of insight into many issues is limited and we can not see the quantum picture. As time as distance from an experience we originally declare to be “bad” or upsetting, mostly because it forces us to change something, we later discover it as a blessing. Spirit wants us to succeed, our free will is the wild card in our lives that sets things in motion and when our ego is driving it many unexpected and strange things can occur. Spirit can be asked to help in your decisions if you choose to listen. Be careful for what you wish for, you may get it. It’s how we learn to trust in our Higher Self. In Light, Kenneth
