Are You Expecting Me to Just Sit Here?
When you feel you have been wronged, how can you tell when you are being called upon to be patient and when you are being called upon to take action? There will be those situations when you will be absolutely torn and very confused about what to do. Should you be patient, seemingly passive, or should you defend your rights, your space, or your “Self?” Your heart may say you are being tested while your ego is screaming. “You can’t do that to me!” How can you determine what is the right thing to do? Most of us may have discovered that you won’t know until you get still.
In all situations you must stop before you move. Not until you stop, look, and listen will you receive divine guidance. Stop worrying, stop blaming, stop being angry and outraged. Look at the situation from all angles and sides. Look for your lesson and share your responsibility. Then, you must turn within and listen for the Spiritual guidance.
If your lesson is to be still or patient, out of no where you will find the strength to let go and know that God’s way is always the perfect way. If it is God’s will that you should act or speak, something inside your being will stand up, move your feet, and point you in the right direction. When you are patient enough to stop, look, and listen, and asking what to do, you will always be shown how to do it.
The lesson is to Stop! Look! Listen before you act!
