All things work together for Good

All things work together for good. There are no exceptions except in the ego's judgment ACIM

Let's be real. we don't know everything and we have no clue what will happen in the future, we just cannot know for sure, which is why the moment we are in is so important. What happens a number of times is rather than we focus on what is in front of us and do what is required to the best of our ability in faith and in love, we focus on what can go wrong, what would people think about what we are doing, are we looking good, are we failing, what would the neighbour's think

Or perhaps we have accepted old conditions and patterns which we have never questioned and just run with that. My mama said this is the way it is, and so be it. Mama may have good intentions but just sometimes the way it is may have evolved or not work in that moment

So keep in mind, all things work together for good, whether it looks that way or not

That does not always mean that it is comfortable or chummy

It may mean that you may have to trust more, believe more, make better choices, leave a situation, leave a relationship, it may mean coming out of your comfort zone

So keep in mind, all things work together for good, whether it looks that way or not

It may mean leaving town, exercising regularly, eating healthier foods, it may mean a small bit of discomfort, it may mean growing pains

When we attach judgement onto an event, it gets sticky

When we attach ego onto it as well

Keep in mind, all things work together for good
