why we get what we need before getting what we want

Why is it that when you are manifesting something, and really looking forward to it, does it seem to take forever to come to you? This could happen for many reasons, and divine timing is one of them.
Also, there are times when we are hung up on getting what we want when the universe is preparing us to receive our desires by giving us what we need first. Just as a squirrel gathers acorns for the winter, we are gathering what we need before getting what we want.
If this process didn’t happen, we may not appreciate what we wanted in the same way.
While this can be frustrating at times, it’s actually the greatest gift that the universe can give us. Also, remember that change doesn’t always happen overnight.

What does it mean to have faith?

Often, especially if we are dealing with life’s challenges, we are encouraged to have faith. So, what does it mean to have faith?
Does it require church attendance or worshipping a higher power? Does it require us to blindly follow someone else’s teachings?
Perhaps having faith means expecting a higher power to act on our behalf without any effort on our part.
While you may have your own perception of what it means to have faith, here is what I’ve learned through my own experience.If I receive divine guidance and wait for something to manifest without acting upon that guidance, that is not having faith because I expected the spirit world to do the work for me.
Instead, having faith requires that I trust the guidance that I am given, act on it, and then allow myself to receive. Sometimes, that is easier said then done, but in the end, it is always worth my time and effort.
