One of my favorite Bible verses is Isaiah40:31:
“ But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ”
Whenever I feel discouraged, I think of this verse … and trust me; it has helped me to get through some rough times.
To me, it means that although God may not answer our prayers in our time, or in our way…He will answer them in His time and in His way.

Down through the years of my life…I can remember sometimes thinking , “why doesn’t God answer my prayer ?” Looking back now, years later, I know that God did indeed answer my prayers…each and every one of them.
Oh, it may not have been the answer I had been praying for, ( thank goodness ) but I realize that He always knew far better than me what I needed each and every time…and He supplied it. See, God already knows what the future holds for us…and we don’t.

When I think back on all the prayers that I can remember sending up to God … prayers for things that I thought I needed or prayers for what I thought would be the right outcome to some situation in my life at the time, well it is a wonder if God even listens to me anymore!
I can just see Him shaking his head when He heard some of those prayers that I sent up and wondering if He remembered to put a brain in my head when He crated me!

Tonight, I am grateful. I am grateful for the friends and folks that God puts in my life…I firmly believe that each and every one of them was given to me for a reason.
I am grateful for my family and thank God for all the days we are allowed to share together here on earth.
And in the words of Garth Brooks…
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the Man upstairs…
That just because He doesn't answer, doesn't mean He don't care…
Some of God's greatest gifts…
Are unanswered prayers.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
