Last night I felt like I was up all night praying. The past couple of weeks I have prayed boldly for three things to happen by today. Two were very likely, one was a stretch. Seemed liked dozens of times a day I laid these requests, among others, before the Lord.

I woke up this morning to get my answers from God. No, no, and no! He can always answer with a "Yes!" in the future. But for today he granted zero for three. I told the Lord last night that I knew He could do anything, but if He chose not to allow these three things to happen right now I would trust Him. I told him I would remember with thanksgiving all of the ways He has blessed me and close my eyes and plunge headlong into those wonderful memories like a bed of feathers. And that's what I am trying to do now. I am trying to look beyond today and remember all the yesterdays that He has said, "Yes! Yes! Yes!". Those times are faith builders for sure. What a steady feeling it is to ask and receive, but more than that, to have the same desires as God. That's one of the main reasons I love this blog. It's a scrapbook of our story and it's a beautiful one because of Jesus-even in hard times. I can look back and see His loving kindness.
