In the midst of our difficulties, we need to remember that the Creator will never give us more than what we are able to handle and to change. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, we always have a choice. We can decide what we will make out of this year. When life throws up roadblocks, it is we who must decide if we will run away or face them, sink or swim.
If we are aware and careful, we will see that every day offers us many little opportunities to choose whether we will be a servant of the Light of the Creator or a slave to our ego. These opportunities present themselves in the seemingly mundane details of our lives, but if we are open and aware that they exist, we can use them to turn ourselves in a new direction.
