Unanswered Prayers

Thursday, May 25

I’m grateful for answered prayers. I’m even MORE grateful for unanswered ones!

I think, dear reader, that if we could actually see what we’ve been spared, when God said “No”, we’d be jumping up and down and shouting hallelujah. Those disappointments and set-backs? What if they were really rescues?

That prince who never rode up on his white horse. Whole passel of problems in his saddlebags, babe.

That job you didn’t get. Where would the path have led? Was it a place you really wanted to go? I think not. God knew what waited at the other end, and because He loves you, He flatly refused to let you go in that direction.

Oh, yes, if we could only see the whole picture, we’d know just how faithfully we are loved.

In the meantime, let’s take it on faith.
