Going on recent events, I am going to step out on a limb and assume one of the hardest things for people to do, is wait, be patient and or give something up,
Most of us pray for things we WANT,
Then when they don’t occur or don’t occur as we want them to,
We get upset, work the nerves of everybody around us,
And still don’t get nothing,
And the reason is simple,
That is not how prayer works,
GOD works in his own time frame,
And he and only he determines what is best,
Sometimes you don’t get what you pray for because it is not time,
And or there may be another lesson for you to learn,
A lot of times the reasons we stay in so much turmoil,
Is because we continue to do the same $#@&,
And of course we are going to get the same results,
Promises made in prayer have to be kept,
And then we have to realize we may be praying for the wrong things,
For two years I prayed to leave this job,
But, for whatever reason I got up and came in every day,
I even got a promotion and two bonuses,
And that was just through Grace,
Because had it depended on what I was praying for,
Or my attitude,
I probably wouldn’t have a job today,
But God knew and he tapped me on my head and other points,
And hard,
Then when I was just about raggedy,
He slowed it down,
And blessed me over and over again,
Because he knew I had been through,
Enough for that lesson,
And he had to get me ready for the next battle,
So I am saying this,
Sometimes you have to wait,
Sometimes you have to be patient,
Sometimes you have to give up some things,
And oftentimes you will not get what you want,
But you will get what you need…
But don’t listen to me,
I am just battle savvy and ready to share my own,
To save you some steps…
But hey do you!

Love and Blessings!

I have to admit that I'm glad God didn't answer some of the prayers I've prayed in my life. Thanking God for the closed doors! I can look back and easily see how I could've ruined what He had in store for me.

we should get together and compare notes!

God's time frame and our time frame are not the same. He knows all and sees all and is always right on time. Over the years I have learned to be patient but yes it is hard. He knows what I need and always provide what I need and even what I want.

He always provides my needs, and an abundance, sometimes not my wants, cause HE knows I dont always want the right things...but I am glad to be BLESSED!

Interesting. I hadn't thought of it that way. Recently I prayed about a situation--of course I wanted it to go a certain way, but it's been going in the opposite direction. I say opposite but it might be the right direction and I just need to come to that realization.

its the challenges that make us strong...
I had to learn that also, over the long haul

Be Blessed!

Sometimes we have to wait for it and not try to rush it. When we rush we lose. God's the driver of our vessels and when we want to turn left sometimes we need to right. Without our driver we would head down the wrong path.

left to our own devices we will mess it up mostly!

Yep, it's hard when you are going through; can't always see it. Wonderful words of wisdom.
