Unanswered Prayers

How many times have you cried out to God for help?  Those moments of desperation where you turn to God crying and pleading for His help because you know you just can’t do it on your own anymore?  And you felt as if God just wasn’t answering your prayers?  I’ve found myself many times crying to God, begging for Him to help me through something difficult I was going through.  I felt so alone.   It’s those moments where I just couldn’t do it on my own anymore and everything just felt so hopeless.  I was completely helpless with no where to turn.   I felt as if God wasn’t hearing me.  I felt like God wasn’t answering my prayers…my cries to Him.  But what I didn’t realize was that God had heard me from the first moment I cried out to Him.  He heard my cries before I even opened my mouth.  What was hard for me to see was that He had started working on my problems before I could even realize.  God was the one that gave me strength to stand up from that bathroom floor and not give up on my family, myself and on Him.  God was the one that got me through the difficult loss of my grandfather.  That was my breaking point in my life.  God was there when I cried day and night for the healing of my son Israel.  He was there on those lonely nights that I felt like I had no one to turn to.  God has always been the reason I keep going.  I can’t imagine where I would be today had I not had God in my life, lifting me up on those days that I was falling apart completely broken.  God took every broken piece and put me back together better and stronger than before.  On those days and nights that I felt like every prayer had gone unanswered, God reminded me that He had never left me and He was answering each prayer, not on my time but on His and best of all, His way.  I know that today, the life I am living, it’s all thanks to God.  He has laid out a path that I never once in my life thought I’d be walking.  But God has always had a better plan than me.  He promises to love us, to never abandon us.  God doesn’t leave you with unanswered prayers.  He hears each cry, each plea, each silent prayer and He answers them how He sees is best for you.  It may not always be how you want but trust that God is answering your prayers to give you the life He wants for you.  God loves you and believe that He wants what is best for you.  God has always been there by your side.  Trust Him…Be patient in prayer…Believe that He will heal you from all your hurt and pain.
