Just This Once…
All our lives we are constantly asking the Universe, or God—whichever you prefer—for help.
Every day there is something new to for us to plead about.
“Just this once”, I have found myself saying time and time again, just this one time; continually summoning the man above to solve all my problems.
On occasion it has worked out really well. I’ve put my best pout-face on and I have invited the Universe to come and lend me a helping hand.
Of course I start out congenially with something like “Hi Universe, I was just wondering if you have time and you don’t mind…”
Other times I haven’t been so adoring! Never the less, I haven’t stopped asking, even to this day.
Why not? Why haven’t I stopped asking the Universe to help me out? Because even through all my trials and tribulations I’ve never given up the notion that there is something greater than myself out there watching over me.
Especially when there have been times in my life that I have wondered, “Where am I going to find the courage and the energy to carry on?”.
Growing up with all of my boyfriend troubles, pimple concerns and clothes laking the latest fashion, I have been fortunate enough to have had some of those ‘prayers’, answered.
I believed, from a very young age, that there was more to my life than just what was in my head (my mind thoughts). I don’t know how I knew, but I just did.
I’ve never lost sight of that belief, and actually now I believe in this conviction more than ever. I faced the biggest challenge of my existence last year. A question of whether I was going to live or die.
So of course, I looked to the Universe once again.
This time though, I didn’t ask for any favours. I simply put a message out there and said “I surrender.”
No, I didn’t want to give up, not at all. I surrendered to the comfort of knowing that whatever the Universal plan was, I was okay with it. I didn’t want to ask for anything,
I really just wanted the Universe to know that I had complete trust in where it wanted my life to go. I absolutely believe that that is the key.
We don’t have to beg and plead the Universe or God for anything because we are already in their good hands, every day of our lives.
The challenge is to embrace enough courage to trust the process.
Don’t get me wrong; it’s okay to ask and send out good intentions for ourselves. Just remember, that the most important follow up if you will; is asking for and surrendering to trust.
