A friend told me he had a bad day. Everything went wrong from the start. A hopeful relationship ended. On the way to an important appointment, he hit a rock with his tire which went instantly flat. He had to cancel the appointment. When he got home, the power was out in his house. What more could go wrong? He lamented.
He told a friend about his ordeals, and she said, “So, what is the universe telling you today?” She didn’t expect an answer, but it left a question in my friend’s mind.
When he told me her reply, I said, “I like to rephrase that question and ask, ‘What is God telling me?’”
We went on to discuss how God is good and sends only love and healing answers our way. When we listen with spiritual sense, we can see beyond evil and master it with the reality of God’s goodness. God’s universe does not set us up to suffer. God’s universe is Love, and Love is ever-present to support, strengthen and sustain us, we agreed.
My friend quickly found peace about his day and focused on all the good coming his way. The series of bad events ended, and he was quickly moving down a path of success once again.
What is God telling you today?
