I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels like I try and try to follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost, only to find out that things didn’t work out. I pray, fast, talk to all the wise old (and young) people I know, study, work, and then repeat! And then it all slips through my fingers. I’m not even that disappointed about the result. What bothers me most is that I felt like I was doing the right thing. It usually takes me weeks and months down the road to recognize all the great things that came from my “horrible mistake and waste of time.” I’m actually in the middle of one of those moments right now in my life. Maybe we all are in one way or another. Reading this blog post from Al Carraway helped me realize that it doesn’t even have to take weeks and months to see the gem stones that tough experiences leave in our lives. Today it happened in a minute! And several other “aha” moments happened later on during the day. The praying doesn’t stop, neither does the hard work to keep aligning my will to Gods. He sends his angels. I KNOW he wants us to be happy. So just when you thought the road was so muddy and messy you couldn’t possibly go one minute more on that road you thought He wanted you to go down… He will send a cool breeze to dry it up and send you right back the way you came!
“I turned my anger and confusion into productive experiences that allowed me to grow in the greatest ways.” Al Caraway
