I wanted to share this quick quote/thought with you. I was at the gym working out this morning listening to the Theater Church Podcast, Pastor Mark Batterson's series So Far So God; by the way awesome series title. Anyways, in the first part of the series, he made a statement that continues to echo within me, his statements was this, "how often will we thank God for all the prayers He did not answer."
Personally, I don't always understand the "whys" and the "hows" of God. Looking back I begin to understand those things. Yes, there are times when I get discouraged when my prayers aren't answer, especially when it comes to the dreams that I know that God has given me. I do get frustrated when things don't go my way sometimes. I do understand and realize how important it is for things to go God's way.
Thanks Pastor Mark for the thought and the sermon.
