I Thought It Was Going to be Difficult and Guess What: It Was!

by Nicole Witt, Ministerial Candidate

My husband yelled from the bedroom, “I think this receiver is dead.” “Great.” I thought. Another hour down the drain on instant chat with AT&T while they want me to re-run every test we have already run to order to convince them we need a new one.

I knew this was ‘my job’ to get fixed. But I hoped that if I put it off long enough, someone else would take care of it.

Nope, if I didn’t want to end up paying every month for a broken box, I was going to have to follow through.

Days went by and I finally sat down at the computer to start the long, arduous process.

About a half-hour in, I was about to blow my top! I was not being the light of the world in that moment!

All of a sudden, it happened.

The Divine Alarm clock went off. I realized I was no longer at peace — what master am I serving in this moment? It certainly wasn’t God.

I asked Holy Spirit for guidance and was led to the Ho’oponopono prayer (I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you) right then and there.

The on-line chat wrapped up; the receiver was in the mail.

As I sat there afterwards, a few things came to me. I asked to see, and I was given vision.

In the middle of my review of what had just happened, I remembered a prayer from ACIM I had just read that day:

“This presents a problem to me
which I would have resolved.
The miracle behind this grievance
will resolve it for me.
The answer to this problem is the
miracle that it conceals.”
(W-90.2:2-4)

I asked to see the miracle and instantly peace came. In the afterglow of basking in that miracle, another came.

I had been thinking this endeavor was going to be a pain in my butt for weeks beforehand and certainly when I sat down at my computer. I thought it was going to be difficult, and guess what? It was.

I got exactly what I asked for. That is how much God loves me.

Maybe next time I could choose to think “Awesome, now I get to talk to some really nice people and to join with them — how freakin’ lucky am I?” when I am faced with dealing with customer service.

After all, I AM the Light of the World!

I found the above musing sitting in a file on my computer simply marked “writings.” It was dated almost exactly six years ago.

So, as I reflect over the last six years, have I chosen to think, “Awesome, now I get to talk to some really nice people and to join with them — how freakin’ lucky am I?” more often than not when dialing that customer service number of any company?

I am grateful to say for the most part, YES! Sometimes, it is not until the middle of the interaction, when I have been placed on hold, again. But in that hold, I remembered my purpose and remembered why I am here, and I had an attitude adjustment.

Have things always been resolved my way? Of course not, but they have always been resolved. And I get to practice forgiveness along the way. A pretty good deal, if you ask me.
