It’s not that things are slower than usual it’s just that I’m the ultimate multi-tasker.
Does intent matter? Well, that depends. As the trip-per, you didn’t intend to trip your opponent but as the trip-pee your opponent is still down on the ice regardless of whether you intended the trip or not. The point is, accidents do happen but the fact is there is still a consequence for them. Do you really believe you’re the first person who has ever tried to lead an “exemplary” existence but still experiences “bad things”? Things happen. They are not always of My doing. It is pointless to question Me about them because I had nothing to do with them. Do you really think I have (or want) any control over whether you buy/sell this duplex? Instinctively I have endowed all living things with the need for food, water, and shelter. Now, buying a parcel of land, knocking down the existing structure, and putting up a very fine duplex for the sake of making a profit isn’t exactly what I had in mind when it comes to “shelter”. YOU people have created ownership. YOU people have created wealth. I just wanted to give you an impetus for getting out of the rain, wind, and cold. Central heating was never in the mix.
You seem to be getting frustrated with Me. You are unhappy that all I offer you at this time are “smelly uncle” hugs and strength that you think you already possess. If you had the strength, however, you would not be calling upon Me at the moment. You didn’t seek my advice when it came to building the duplex so why do you seek Me out now? Because you had the wherewithal to build it but now that you’re feeling the pressures of not being able to sell it you are discovering that you are faltering. Where were you in the first few weeks and months after the duplex went on the market? Why weren’t you begging me for buyers at the start? Because the pressure wasn’t yet greater than your resolve. You have strength Jeff, but it is limited and when you know it’s almost gone you instinctively seek out more. You are seeking shelter Jeff, in Me. It’s what I have always endowed within my children. And when you seek My shelter, I will shelter you…if you let me. The business of buying/selling real estate is below Me. The process of enabling and caring for My children is My business.
Bottom line Jeff; you’re acting like a child right now but that’s because you are. My child. Trust that I’ve been around a long time and know what works and what doesn’t. Put your faith and trust in Me when all else fails (and if you’re smart you’ll do BEFORE all else fails) and things will work out fine. Not perfectly perhaps, but fine. Trust Me.
Big squishy hugs,
