Thank God for Unanswered Prayers

I love this quote.  I’ve mentioned it plenty of times over the course of years, but this little card reminds me how big God is.  It reminds me of how amazing His plan is, how perfect it is, and how incredibly idiotic and ridiculous my prayers were for things to go my way.

If all those stupid prayers of mine were answered, well, I wouldn’t be where I am today.  I’d be stuck living with my young, uneducated and spontaneous decisions missing the bigger picture, and yet never knowing this.  I look back and I think, thank you Jesus for not listening to me – boy was/am I bad at thinking what is good for me.  So, when things don’t go the way you want, be reminded that  the highest counselor, the controller of fate, your creator, Lord God is allowing every event to pass through His kingdom and go through Him before it touches you.  His plan is better and with his counsel, plenty of prayer, you can put all your faith in Him and allow Him to control your life.

I promise it will all work out.  I am reminded of this every day when I see Mr. Wonderful.

    “sometimes an event can serve more than one purpose and to more than the people involved.” YES! And I wouldn’t be where I am today (Licensed to care for children in foster care) if I got my prayer answered that I was praying for the last year and a half!
