The answers never come when the mind is busy, they only come when the mind is still.

Often we pray for something big, within several days little things may come into our life as well. Someone may pay you a compliment or offer you their assistance. Do not shrug those little things off. If we refuse to receive the little things the universe will not send us the big things. Often it is the little things that start the magnetic pull and are the precursor of the manifestation of the big things.
At times of change, the learners are the ones who will inherit the world, while the knowers will be beautifully prepared for a world which no longer exists.
Mother Theresa was asked what she said when she prayed. She answered that she didn’t say anything, she listened. When asked what God said to her, she said that God didn’t say anything; He listened back. She added that if you didn’t understand, she couldn’t explain it further. God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer..
Things didn’t work out because, well, greater things were in the works.
It’s so difficult while we’re blind and hurting and don’t know which way is up. But, if you have faith in anything, have faith in the fact that the universe has a beautiful way of straightening things out far better than we ever could.
You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful or where you always wanted to be.
You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.
Before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children;
Before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.
In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.
