Thank God For Unanswered Prayers
March 20, 2017 9:05pm CST
Garth Brooks sings a song with these lyrics, "Thank God, for unanswered prayers." Do you realize that God not only provides what we need but also keeps us from harm's way by not always giving us what we think we want? Think about some of the things that you really, really wanted but didn't get. As you look back now do you see where it is a blessing that you didn't get that thing that you thought you wanted at that time? Perhaps it was a job, a significant other, or a move. I do thank God for His will, His timing, and His plan for my life and not answering some of my prayers with the answer that I thought I needed.

As much as I complain about my marriage, I know our relationship is a blessing. He has changed tremendously over the past 20 years, I don't know whether I have. After watching my husband playing cards this weekend I saw him in a light I haven't seen in awhile and it made me want to be better for him. I believe God brought us together for a reason and doesn't want to see the marriage end so together we will work on it.

I was house hunting and I fell in love with three, all in different towns but I got this place and then the storm came. with Tornados. Every one of those three houses was damaged or blown completely away. That is a real blessing of not getting what I wanted.
