I just finished reading this book called “The Circle Maker” (project for work). It was about prayer and how sometimes we just don’t pray “big enough”. That if our prayers aren’t “impossible” to us, they are insulting to God. Because if our prayers are not “impossible” to us, they don’t require divine intervention. The book says “there is nothing God loves more than keeping promises, answering prayers, performing miracles, and fulfilling dreams.” The book goes on to say “the greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered because they go unasked.”
So it got me thinking on how “big” are some of my prayers. Do I have an “impossible prayer” that would require divine intervention. Do you have an “impossible” prayer? Sometimes life hands us unexpected struggles. But it’s important to remember to look for the everyday gifts/blessings in life, especially when we’re facing what looks to be a negative situation.
I’ve said before that I don’t believe in coincidences. Looking back on some of the “choices/decisions” I’ve made, good and bad, have all led me to where I am at this moment. And at 53 years old I get to “choose” how I want the rest of my life to look. All situations give us a chance to choose and sometimes not choosing is STILL a decision. But all the choices have made me stronger and at times have stretched me beyond my comfort zone. You never know what is around the corner . . . . So pray an “impossible” prayer!
