Unanswered Prayers

    Garth Brooks once sang, ‘Some of God’s Greatest Gifts… Are Unanswered Prayers.’ And he’s right. Looking back on quite a few of the things that I wish for, I find myself not only asking what I was thinking, but I also find myself so unbelievably pleased with the way life has turned out… & one single change in any part of my life might not have placed me where I am today.

    We all have people who hurt us; things that didn’t quite go our way. When these things happen, we’re devastated & wondering why. It hurts like hell… but it just might be a little blessing. You just might come to find five, or even three years down the road, that it was all supposed to work out this way; you just might wake up & see that you’re finally free of whatever it was that tied you down.

    As hard as it might be, when things knock you down, you need to pick yourself up. No one else can do this for you. It’s you who’s going to give yourself permission to move forward… & when you find yourself happy once again, you will give yourself permission to fall without fear. Because you can handle anything.

    … And those wishes & prayers that go unanswered… they just might get you right where you’re supposed to be. Whether religious or not, I think it’s time to start believing in what life is capable of.

Are you willing to go the distance?
