Jen and I were right on time for our airplane. We started down the road practically singing, when suddenly, in front of us were two signs, forcing us to choose one direction or the other, neither of which mentioned our destination. ARGHHH!. So we picked one and within a few miles, decided we had picked the wrong one. We turned around but then wondered if the other road was indeed the right one. That's when the worry about getting to the airport on time began.
Desperately trying to stay positive and talk to angels, eventually turned into: "how could you do this to us when we have a plane to catch?" Clearly we did everything right, including getting two maps from our friend - which apparenlty missed some crucial turning points.
Have you ever done that in your life? You feel prepared, you are working things out as best you can, and then suddenly there is this crossroad - and the consequences of your choice are not clear. The only thing you do know is that if you are wrong, it will cost you, and you might not have time to make a better decision.
A clue for the spiritually inclined: Spirit/God made time and space. Give the pressure of the not enough time and wrong choice none of your power. Say "Thank you for perfect timing and Divine Order," no matter what you see, feel and know. If necessary, just believe the impossible situation in front of you is there to test your faith or build that muscle of belief.
Jen and I said our "thank you's" in between doubting, moaning, and complaining at not having the smooth, flowing ride to which we felt entitled. We were cutting it so close by the time we breathlessly arrived at our gate, that we may well have been late - except that the plane was delayed....
Funny how that works...and trust me, it works.
