Imagine


The Possibility of Today with Sibyl Chavis
+++++++++++

20 SEC reading: the boy and the rain by Paulo Coelho's Blog


After four years of drought in the small north-east village, the priest gathered everyone for a pilgrimage up to the mountain; there they would do a collective prayer, asking for the rain to fall again.

In the group, the priest noticed a boy wearing a raincoat.

‘Are you crazy?’ he asked the boy.

‘It hasn’t rained in this region for five years and the heat from hiking up the mountain will kill you.’

The boy replied: ‘I have a cold, priest. If we are going to ask God for rain, can you imagine our return from the mountain? It will be a spate and I need to be prepared.’

At this moment, they heard a great roar coming from the sky and the first drops began to fall. It sufficed the faith of a boy in a miracle that even the most prepared ones didn’t believe in.

I need to be more prepared for the miracles I pray for.

I read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and loved it. If nothing else please remember one thing; the Light of God will never, ever fail you. Your prayers are always answered. If you want to experience the results of your prayers then you must claim the outcome and be ready in receivership of them. Never doubt that all of your prayers are always answered. Doubt is the nefarious stepchild of fear.

Love,
Xenia
