How Fear and Worry Can Magnify the WHY in Your Life
This morning’s quiet time consisted of my regular practice of prayer, meditating and allowing my thoughts to travel wherever needed for guidance and/or healing. Sometimes I get ideas for blog posts. Sometimes a song will pop into my brain (& stay there). Sometimes a warmth washes over me like a big squeeze from the Universe saying everything is going to be okay.
Today’s me-time had members of my ‘Army of Angels’ showing up to deliver peaceful hugs….
And then, BAM! An uncontrollable sobbing-fest began.
Tears for their too early departure from this earth~ Tears for their children, spouses, siblings, parents that grieve the emptiness they’ve left behind. Then, the tears filled with fear and worry sprung free… for my own children and the heartbreaks they’ll endure during their earthly stay.
*Will someone care for my autistic child with 1/10th of the love that I hold for him?
*Will my younger son be able to navigate this world for himself AND his older special needs brother?
*Will they be happy? Will they be peaceful? WILL THEY BE SAFE???
*Am I doing enough to help set them up for success?
My prayer of, “Please God, allow me 50 more healthy, happy & sound years so I may be here to advocate for my kids, for other special needs families, and for anyone I can/ should/ will help” pounds through my veins.
A heavenly hug envelops me~ reminding me that all is right in the world…. at least for right now….. in this very moment.
Which it actually is in this exact timeframe that I remember to thank my lucky stars for these moments. Because they are designed to remind me of things like *why I blog to *why I breathe.
So when life gets hairy and dirty and scary and upside-down; STOP! Take a breath, (or 12), and look around you in that precise moment and remember that EVERYTHING is peaceful (at least for that millisecond). And everything else is God’s business… and who am I to tell God how to run his business? Fore, all events in the Universe are unfolding just as they should be~ behind the scenes~ FOR YOU.
