Are you always talking about being something or someone in the future instead of simply being that right now? Are you living to become that which you already are? Or are you believing that you will arrive somewhere instead of knowing that you are already there?
You are where you are for the complete unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. It might appear to be a struggle; it might appear that you are going through hell; it might appear to be the darkest time in your life; it might appear that you are going through the ‘valley of the shadowof death.” Appearance can, and will, be deceiving.
A seed does not germinate until it is buried ‘in the valley’ and blocked from the light. When the ground water passes over the seed and interacts with the chemicals in the dirt it catalyzes the inherent properties of the seed to trigger germination.

Step out of the darkness into the light of reality by allowing that which you truly are to lead your steps. It is up to you and you alone. May you always trust completely in the Divine to guide your steps into complete and utter fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
