unanswered prayers

unanswered prayers

I thank God every day that my ex-boyfriend and I never got married.  That was 5 years ago and I can’t imagine where I’d be if we did.  I can only think lonely, depressed, and unhealthy.

So, sometimes He says, in His infinite wisdom, “No.”  We may be hurt and cry and pout but, in the end, we thank Him, because like an earthly father he is acting in our best interest, even when we think He’s being unfair.

I’m sure you’ve seen or heard the saying – God has 3 answers for our prayers: Yes, Not Yet, or I have something better for you.  It’s so true, right?

I love this illustration of how we want to hold on to something so badly we don’t see what He has for us is so. much. better.


We only need to trust.  Are you trusting today?  What is God asking you to let go of?

  1. Thank you, thank you for this. God speaks to me through your post and I am so thankful. I am working very hard to trust in Him and let Him lead my life everyday and these reminders are so special. God needs me to let Him decide when our family is ready to grow. We are trying for baby #2 and instead of getting disappointed each month our next angel isn’t coming I need to be remember that we are blessed with one right now and when He is ready to send our next angel He will. 🙂

  2. Thank you for this post. I’m still grappling with a myriad of emotions in the wake of my fiance’s sudden death two months ago. God is here and His plan will be revealed in time-i know this logically but it is a daily emotional battle to sift through the broken pieces. Your reminder came at just the right time. Thank you.

    1. I am so sorry to hear about your fiance. I cannot imagine the emotional trial you are going through. I will be praying for you. I’m glad that this post was a comfort to you.

      P.S. I just added you on instagram (@niki.ferguson)
