Have you ever wanted something so bad and you waited and waited to hear the good news, only to find out that you didn’t make the cut?
Now, you’ve done nothing but pray about this thing for as long as you can remember, but seemingly to no avail.
Perhaps, this very important thing you’ve been praying for is not what God has planned for your life. Or maybe, just not yet.
Could it be that he has prepared something better for you? Well, you have to live by faith and realize that God knows what is best for you.
As I go on faith in the Lord and his plans for my life, I am beginning to realize that what is for me, Is For Me. So, if God has a blessing prepared for me, it will be given to me when he is ready, or better yet when he knows that I am ready to receive it.
On the other hand, if it is not God’s will that I get that thing that I so desperately wanted or needed, then it wasn’t mine to get because he would have provided it for me.
Even with faith in the Lord, it is still a very hard pill to swallow when you feel the rejection of any kind. Some of us take it to heart and feel bad about it but the smart ones keep moving on to Plan B.
My plan B is continuing to pray for guidance and direction while doing what I believe is required of me spiritually and physically.
Life isn’t that simple, though, because our minds can sometimes get stuck in a worldly thought pattern and that’s when worry, concern, and sometimes mistakes set in because we are not willing to wait for clarity.
We have to remind ourselves to remain faithful and positive and know that the Blessings that God has for us will surface as long as we are diligent in our efforts and stay in the will of God and not our own will.
Just something to think about…
