LINA, What Must Be, Shall Be
I do my best on a daily basis, to dwell in a space of Faith. For me, this means to remember and be aware that my life has a divine plan. My creator and I devised this life plan to incorporate lessons for me to learn while I am on this earthly plane. These lessons are to facilitate the growth of my soul and include both painful and pleasurable ones. I know and understand that these challenges come in perfect timing when I am ready for them.
My Faith comes from the experiences that have occurred in my lifetime so far. When I look back at some of the most painful events I have survived, I know that each one built up spiritual strength to continue to move through more pain to evolve. It is the nature of life that the most difficult lessons are the ones that teach us the knowledge we need the most to advance as an eternal being.
In retrospect, I perceive from this last dark night of the soul experience, is that in the emotional absence of Love, my Faith was quite diminished. Disoriented and vulnerable in the dark, I lost my sense of direction and my inner knowing that I would find the Light again. I wondered if I would ever feel happy. I couldn’t see beyond the Darkness. Would I be left in the dark forever because my heart had been destroyed?
It is in the darkest of times that our Faith is tested the most. I have been in the dark many times and each time I have found the Light again. What is interesting is that when I was in the Dark, I did not have the presence of mind to call out for help. I know that help is there, just beyond the border of the darkness. Perhaps that is part of the lesson, to endure the dark until I discover the lesson I need to learn.
Our lives unfold as they must, following the Divine Plan of our individual needs. We cannot control which lessons come when, we can only control how we deal with them as they happen. Living in Faith keeps us from worrying about them before they show up. Each challenge makes us stronger. The Darkness only lasts until we learn the lesson. Faith survives to escort us to the next one and waits for us on the other side of it.
