I am not disappointed but in full expectancy of receiving it. Guess there is an element of truth when they say luck is when preparation meets an opportunity.
This morning, while on my way to work, I spotted a 20cent coin in the drain and like an experienced coin picker, I automatically bend one leg into the drain and pick up the dry coin, happily tucking into my pocket. I find it amazing that God's timing can be so perfect. What if I had taken the cross over bridge and I would probably have missed it , wouldn't I ?
Why at the particular timing , that spot ? What happened to so many people who passed it by each day? Did they not spot it like I do ? Still, I am convinced "I had" picked up a $10 note and the first thing I did was to text my wife, "Honey, look how great God is to me. I picked $10 today!!“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Mark 13:32
Another thing happened this morning as well. Since changing my diet to a near vegetarian style, I have discovered I had more energy than before, sleep less and always hungry for more food. I was attending a parenting session and the trainer whom had seen me several times since last year commented that I looked radiant.
I remembered clearly I jot down these exact words in one of my goals list. The words I would hear would be :You look radiant. Oh my god, I almost blushed as I wasn't expecting such a compliment at all. Not forgetting I went cold turkey to quit my coffee, dairy products and meat all at one go. Imagine if you had been taking chicken (my favourite) for so many years and suddenly, drop it immediately. No withdrawal symptoms of any kind and I felt lighter and healthier as well.
In other words, WHAT we need to do is to be clear what we want in life. State it positively, Feel it as if it is already in our possession (money in the hand, bank account, compliment from someone, etc) and repeat it day, noon and night. Let the emotions run high - excited, happy, relieved, peaceful, etc. Let it overwhelm you so much that because it had happened, the problems you are facing now is gone. And if the problems is gone, would you still be whining and complaining?
Would your face not put on a smile, feel light hearted or simply feel peaceful things are going the way it is ?
