Expectations

If we have faith in God to bring us through the ordeal perhaps we might also consider that God brought us into the ordeal in order to test and transform us. Our task is trust.

When we have expectations that aren’t being met we tell a story that includes words like should and should not. Those words are in direct confrontation with reality.

Go into the present moment as often and for as long as you are able. Stay with the breath and consider the number of times we expect that something should be one way or another way even when it’s not.

Perhaps if we meet this enemy, this negative energy, with gratitude for the lessons unfolding, we might get through it with less pain.
