“When you feel worried, sit down, relax, take a deep breath, connect with the desire, and wait for the answer. The answer to desire will be given in due time and in perfect form. Someone will knock on the door and bring you the solution, or a situation will be unlocked, or a successful idea will come, or simply the problem will be otherwise resolved.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I
Jesus is very sure about this advice, but how many of us, when overwrought, are inclined to sit still and let God handle the worry? If we move in this manner, our worries will dissolve, and solution will be found. A Course in Miracles says that the solution is always WITH the problem. Often when we think we have a long-held problem, we are seeking a solution before its time, or, in other words, fretting needlessly about something that is not here yet.
Listen to Jesus in this quotation. Do it now, if you can, for I am sure that all of us have problems that cry out for solutions, and solutions that have seemed obscure. See if it is time for a solution, if indeed anything at all needs to be done NOW. Often we are simply borrowing trouble.
Sitting still and listening, in the silence, for God’s Answer, is advice that is “right on” and perfectly suited for most of us.
Try it today. Try it now.

This is good advice. I worry about my new book sales because I have only sold 16 copies in its first month of release on Amazon. But I think in time word will get out and more people will buy Torn Between Worlds: An illegal immigrant’s journey to find herself. I felt called by God to write this novel so he must have a plan for me to help it get wider exposure! Take care, friend!
