Sometimes we want something so much and we put every effort into making it happen but it doesn't turn out the way we expected.
It can be devastating.
That has happened to me and, for a long time, I didn't know what to think about it. In fact, it can even feel like God/Spirit/the Creator is against us.
Three phrases changed the devastation into understanding for me and, so of course, I wanted to share them with you.
