I sat down to read a spiritual forecast for this month this morning. The thing that stood out most was the repeated call to stand in faith and truth. That stance allows us to weather any storm, no matter its tenacity. It reminds us that physical manifestation does not always reflect spiritual evolution.
That idea is much easier to practice when times don’t feel turbulent.
The beautiful thing is that God has an amazing ability to meet us where we are. Challenges don’t beset us to break us down, but to allow us an opportunity to grow our faith and build a life better than we imagine. Fear, doubt, and worry may show up; there is no demon we can’t overcome if we are willing to examine and understand its source. They can serve as protection mechanisms, in the sense they appear when the opportunity for evolution presents itself.
Remember, when we take the time to thoughtfully examine a problem, to stop and process our associated emotions, we often uncover a clarity that helps us move toward resolution.
