Garth Brooks Was Right


Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. I’m so thankful for all the things I’ve prayed would happen that God made sure didn’t happen. Over time I’ve learned that only God’s plans flourish. I may feel compelled by my gut, but I can only trust my God. I may think something is best at the moment, but only God can see the bigger picture.

Thanks to many unanswered prayers my life continues to fall into place. God makes sure my needs are met. He keeps putting things in their rightful place and does things with perfect timing. He keeps guarding me from taking paths that aren’t meant to be. He keeps opening doors making it clear when to move forward.

You see, part of discovering God’s will is eliminating what is not. Thank you God for many unanswered prayers that have kept me from a world of trouble. Thank you for intervening when I thought I had things figured out. Thank you for leading me away from the wrong relationships and guiding me to the right ones. Heaven Father, I now fully trust you with every detail of my life. I’ve learned that success is only found through Your plans.

“You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail.”
Proverbs 19:21
