If I believe that G‑d is everything; and I do today; I have to believe that everything I am experiencing comes from G‑d. This is such a hard pill to swallow sometimes. I try and think which step applies to being frustrated with G‑d’s will for me…

I think at the core, it is the seventh step. I have to be open today to being the person that G‑d wants me to be. Every day I wake up and make myself a vessel. I ask G‑d to remove the things that block me from being of service to Him, so I can fulfill the purpose he has for me today.

So, the perceived unpleasant experiences of today may be the stepping stones to the character traits I need to build for tomorrow. If I can view things this way, I am more likely to be serene and I have to fall back on the fear prayer. I have to ask G‑d to remove my fear of the unknown and replace it with how he would have me be. Then maybe I can again be okay with G‑d’s will for me today.
