OH WELL, MAYBE IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE... OR WAS IT?

Do you know how thoughts often come at the most random times? Well as I was preparing to satiate a craving for an ice cream cone by scooping delicious Rocky Road onto my Oreo cone, I was having trouble after trouble creating the nice, clean cone I had envisioned.


My first scoop flew out of the carton and onto the floor, which I was quick to pick up and place on my cone (5 second rule & increased immunity ๐Ÿ˜‰)




When I placed it on my cone, the cone broke and the scoop fell onto the counter. After a few more spills, I said aloud, "Maybe this wasn't meant to be?" But I didn't like that idea, so I quickly mentioned a rebuttal, "Or maybe it is so important that unseen forces are trying to stop me from succeeding and I have to work extra hard at it!


Well which is it? Have you ever thought of this dichotomy? When something gets really hard, do you throw in the towel and chalk it up to "Well it must not have been meant to be" or do you say "Not Today, Satan?"


I'm sure you can think of both scenarios in your life in different circumstances. How do you know which direction to go?


I think for me, I go with where my desire leads me. If Iโ€™m naturally motivated to push forward, I do, and I often find I receive confirmation from the Spirit that it is worth my time or is a mission and is meant to be.

If I lose interest, I see it as something that was probably not meant to be.

This is an example of intuitive living.

I'm a structured person, so intuitive living is something I've really had to work at to be able to grasp the concept of doing things when I feel the urge, and not put them off. Sometimes there's a bit of God's timing that comes into play and we might miss opportunities without being intuitive.

I'd love to know what you do when this dichotemy comes into play in your life. Can you think of a time you've had to decide whether to push forward or walk away?
