I recently applied for a semi "dream job". I was not selected for the position. Was I disappointed? Yes!!!
I wanted a better opportunity for my children. "God, my daughters desire to be in ballet. My son desires to learn the piano and drums. They want to do it all for Your glory."
My disappointment turned into anger. I prayed, confessed the Word, studied to show myself approved, and then humility kicked in. I quickly repented for doubting His process and timing.
We have a picture in our mind of exactly how everything is supposed to work out: we’ll have this relationship by this age, this job at this point, this much money in the bank by this year, this many children, this car, this house, and on and on.
When things don’t go our way, it’s important to learn to trust that God, the Father, has our back. Even though your situation might look bleak at the moment, there’s something better coming. I truly believe that when we think in this way, we actually create these bigger and better things. Call it a shift in perspective, a self-fulfilling prophecy, or the law of attraction. However you want to think of it, there’s a mountain of evidence attesting to the fact that, in all areas of life, the way you think matters. ("As a man thinks so is he.")
