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?
