There’s a song I used to sing called “He is able.” Every time I sing it, it speaks to me. One of the verses say “We’ve prayed as best we can, now we must leave it in His hands.”
I have prayed for a very specific thing to happen for a while. After a string of what seemed like unanswerd prayers I was getting pretty frustrated with God. I found myself not praying anymore for specific prayers. Just generally asking God to move. I think it was more like not my will but yours be done.
Well the news is that I am moving on up to the Northside. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Not really but I had to go with it. Anyway, I have been promoted to assistant manager at the Liberty starbucks. This is an answer to prayer. Its not the answer I was hoping for. I was hoping for a bag of money to fall out of the sky so Nate could whittle his 3 jobs down to one and focus on Restore. Maybe I could just work part-time with that bag o’money and focus on my children and Restore. It may not be the answer I was looking for but its an answer and its great. I am now going to drive 15-20 minutes as opposed to 45. I’m one step closer to getting my own store. Its a slight raise which is always nice!
I have no idea what God is up to but I believe his is able to do more than I can ask for. So I am thanking God today for this blessing.
