Surprising Answers

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.—Hebrews 12:11 (NIV)

If you have been praying for something for a long time, ask yourself, could I have already received the answer and somehow missed it? Sometimes we are so focused on what we want, that we don’t recognize the answer we receive.

Dear Lord, I know You hear and answer my prayers. I’ll keep praying, knowing that You are helping me as I go forward.
