There is a difference in making things happen and letting them happen. We often injure ourselves and others when we try and force life to give us the goods. It takes courage and strength to allow things to come to us in their time. We waste energy and tire ourselves chasing things down. Stop, look, and breathe. You will find that things fall into place when we place our focus on God instead of the things, we are demanding that He supply us with. There is a whole world of miracles passing us by because we don't know how to be present to ourselves God and others in the moment. The most powerful people in history have learned the value of being present to themselves and others.
