It is our focus on loss rather than gain that has created these experiences. If we can have the courage to recognize what we have learned during those times of seeming loss and bless them, we are starting on the path toward a more fulfilling life. It speaks in the scriptures about "I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten..." This is our assurance that those years when we felt abandoned or despaired of ever finding our way back have not destroyed our good. Our good awaits our understanding. Our good awaits our acceptance that the wisdom we gained in awareness during those times is an important part of who we are today.
We must believe that our good was not destroyed or lost. It has only been our attitude, our belief in loss, that has blocked it from manifesting in our life. The only thing remaining is for us to declare fully our belief in divine restoration. Our good will be restored in God's time and in God's way.
