When Nothing Happens

We may have experienced a time in our life where it appears to be a drought, nothing may be growing, and it appears we are at a standstill.  We may feel that we are motionless, but in fact we are constantly moving towards something that we may not see. To look at it in a different perspective when it appears that nothing is happening, we would not be able to see what is working behind the scenes.

In the grand scheme of things we are blinded by that which is our present, and it causes us to come to the conclusion that our future is bleak. If you can remember the job that you always wanted but never got, the person that you thought was the right one but wasn’t, these events led to the person that you are today.  The person that you are today represents a series of unexplainable, and both fortunate and unfortunate events.  The events could cause you either to become resilient or bring you down in defeat.

When nothing is happening, there is usually construction taking place in the background that you cannot see. We are programmed to believe that we must see to believe something is happening, but it’s more than likely what we can’t see, is the driving force to our next chapter in life.
