One of the easiest things to forget when times are tough is that the physical plane is one of polarity. That means that every gift will bring us a new challenge in its wake and every challenge will also bring a gift. We may not immediately see this when we are caught up in the moment, but using hindsight you can verify that it is always true.
The next time the world looks like a vast, bleak and lonely desert, remember that even in the desert flowers do bloom. Your gift will come. It will be commensurate to the challenge, so if the challenge is very large, the gift will be as well. It's Universal Law. Relax and look for it. It will be revealed.
