With my awareness, I began to realize that apart from the discouragement and disappointments that I experienced, I may have never have moved on to the next lesson. Through my spiritual awakening experience I came to realize that hope had always been present.
Even when I did not realize that I was being led — by the Author of hope — I was taught knowledge and given insight and wisdom. Hope encouraged, motivated and empowered me when I wanted to give up on the process and myself. Hope gave me the determination and tenacity to trust that I was being led — when little made sense to me.
Hope helped me to realize that my efforts — when I experienced discouragement and disappointment — were not in vain.
What I share with you here is based on my experience. What I thought was meant for my harm — that resulted in my being discouraged and disappointed — I discovered became an integral part of the plan. What I thought had been of little value, meaning or purpose I discovered had been instrumental — in my process.
During times when I felt discouraged and disappointed, I now realize those times were meant for my good — to prepare me for opportunities yet to be revealed. What I could not see — at the time — I now know occurred to empower my process.
