The Man and The Flood
It had been raining for days and days, and a terrible flood had come over the land. The waters rose so high that one man was forced to climb onto the roof of his house.
As the waters rose higher and higher, a man in a rowboat appeared, and told him to get in. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in God; God will save me.” So the man in the rowboat went away.
The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.The waters rose higher and higher, and suddenly a speedboat appeared. “Climb in!” shouted a man in the boat. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in God; God will save me.” So the man in the speedboat went away.
The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.The waters continued to rise. A helicopter appeared and over the loudspeaker, the pilot announced he would lower a rope to the man on the roof. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in God; God will save me.” So the helicopter went away.
The man on the roof prayed for God to save him.The waters rose higher and higher, and eventually they rose so high that the man on the roof was washed away, and alas, the poor man drowned.
Upon arriving in heaven, the man marched straight over to God. “God,” he said, “I had faith in you, I prayed to you to save me, and yet you did nothing. Why?” God gave him a very puzzled look, and replied “I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you expect?”
LISTEN UP PEEPS… If a blessing shows up in your life, especially one that you have asked for, please don’t block it. Even if it doesn’t show up in the exact package you expect or at what you think is the “perfect” time, please recognize that it wouldn’t show up if it wasn’t “right.” You would never dream of telling someone who bought you a gift that you’d asked for… “Ummm, no thank you, because I wanted it at 8pm but you gave it to me at 9 and in blue wrapping paper no less.” Don’t put constraints or conditions on the master plan, and definitely don’t try to figure it out… I promise you never will.
Trust and believe that everything and everyone that shows up in your life is perfectly right and perfectly on time and that you are worthy of having it. To pass stuff by that comes to you, especially if you’ve custom ordered it, sends the negative message to the universe that you are not ready to receive all the abundance that it is ready to give. An attitude of gratitude is probably a better way to go because it tells the universe to keep it coming.
