“Open your eyes and look at the world around you with gratitude; it is all a gift from God. Even those parts of life you’d rather not see hold lessons or blessings for you. The traffic jam that you are stuck in, for instance, is keeping you from an accident that you would have otherwise experienced. The cold that you came down with brings you the day off you have needed, but have neglected to take. The relationship that ended abruptly opened the door for something bigger and better in your life.
Of course, if you see it as the end of your world, it just might be. People wallow in depression over such things and delay the good which awaits them. Mourn your losses, if you wish; it’s only natural. But then get on with your life and your miracle. You have asked for something and God is trying to give it to you. If you don’t like it, ask for something else. You have free will. That means if you want to see the world as a miserable place, you can. If you want to change it, you can – just do it! If you ask for it, it will be given unto you. This is a two way street. If it is given unto you, you asked for it, or it is one of the stepping stones on the path of manifestation.”
