even when You answer
in a way different from my way
i’ll continue to stay and say
you are the Way.

I’ve been praying for something specific
for the last 2 years.
Some days hourly.
Asking God.
Begging God.
Reminding God.
Attempting to strike deals with God.
And what I have been asking for has not happened.
It’s been answered several different ways, but not the way I want it to be answered.

When I was 12, I asked my mom if I could have cookies for dinner and she gave me a baked chicken breast, broccoli, and rice.

She knew best.

She heard what I was asking for and gave me something.
She understood what I desired and gave me what I needed.

And I trust this is what God is doing, too.
