Sometimes God gives us difficult things to understand.
We pray and pray and pray, and it seems like He doesn't answer.
Or it seems like the answer is wrong.
But He always answers, and He's never wrong.
Sometimes it's just a different answer than what we hoped for.
I received some sad news yesterday morning. Kind of surprising and yet, not totally unexpected news. But really sad, definitely unwanted, news. I've had some time to digest it, and time to remember that God's plan for His people, for His church if you will, is good, and when we entrust that to Him we can experience peace, and even happiness, in the situation. Prayers will continue, some the same and some different.
God will continue to hear them...and to answer them.
In His way and in His time.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord,
thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
