When things don't seem to be happening

Sometimes it seems as though LOA isn't working. Maybe some small things are working, but the big ones, they seem to be staying out of reach. We don't know why. Is there anything we can do?

We feel we have to do something, we need to make that manifestation appear. But in reality we cannot do anything. We have to do what we can, then stop and let go. I know that's easier said than done.

At the time I'm writing this we're still waiting for my husband's final paycheck from November. His direct deposit wasn't input on time for payday and they mailed a paper check. Every day we are checking the mailbox. No check. Every day we talked about what we were going to do with the money. Pay our bills, buy groceries. But no check.

So we check our feelings about not having the check. We're frustrated, we're angry at the company, at the post office. We name the feelings and let them out.

We are thankful for what is happening. I get three checks this month, so we were able to pay the final bills for November. We had food in the cabinets. We had enough gas money to get back and forth to work. We are noticing what is happening and what is working.

We played the "wouldn't it be nice if..." game.

We had a fun Saturday at a friend's wedding, even though it was an hour away and we had discussed issues with gas for this week

We visualized getting the check in the mailbox, how happy and relieved we would be when it came.

But still no check. And now payroll is saying a new check should be in by Thursday. So we're waiting and we're letting it go. There is nothing more we can do.

But I believe that even though it looks like nothing is happening, it is. Something is happening. It may be something we cannot see yet. But down the road, we will find out why this happened. And even though we
didn't have the money in November when it was planned, it will come when it's meant to be here. And in the meantime, all our needs have been provided. We have food, we have gas, the bills are paid.

To help us continue to be thankful and grateful, we are reading these verses and affirmations: 

Heb 13:5: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

Phil 4:19: And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Eph 6:13b ...and after you have done everything, to stand.


Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forward -- Kierkegaard

Something's Coming - Westside Story

It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

So keep holding on. Keep waiting. Stay strong. Believe, with no doubt, something is working. Something is happening. Look for the clues. Look for what is happening in your life, what is manifesting. You may find it's closer than you think.
