Prepare yourself

God gives messages in many ways: In a song we hear, a daily word, a phone conversation, or an article we read. He speaks in many diverse ways. We need to be prepared to receive His word and recognize He may answer our prayers without actually speaking.

Be open to experiencing His word wherever it appears. Be willing to admit you need His help and stop worrying how the answer will arrive. He gives us what we need when we need it. Don't wait idly while awaiting an answer but take steps to prepare yourself towards realization.

Do your homework, take classes to improve your skills, study, be positive in your outlook. Be prepared to recognize the gift when it comes for God answers unexpectedly. Believe in yourself and your dreams.

Practice gratitude on a daily basis. Give back to the universe and to others. Share what you already have. Give thanks to God. Honor God and yourself by doing your very best at everything you do, even while waiting for your aspirations to come to life.

All work is God's work, do it in joy and you will be blessed. Do not abhor what you do and do it poorly while waiting for your ship to come in. This is not right living, or good intention. We learn something useful in all that we do and there is a blessing in all things, do not fail to see them.

Do not be disappointed that your wants are delayed. God does not work on our time schedule. What seems forever to us is just a fraction of a second to God. He knows no time but the appropriate time for things to take place. He gives what we need when we need it not when we think we should have it and He is always right on time.
