Have you ever prayed for something, expecting God to answer it in one way, only to have Him turn everything upside down and answer in a way you never expected?
In recent months, I have been praying specific things for our family. Several weeks ago, Brandon & Megan shared their good news about their upcoming move to Ohio. Be sure to visit their blogs to read all about it! Initially, the “mom” in me struggled a bit. OK, for two straight days. But on the third day, in the midst of my tears, this Scripture came to mind:
I realized at that moment that God had answered my prayers… just not in a way I expected. My pity tears quickly subsided and I began to praise the Lord, confident that He is in control, that He has a divine and marvelous plan for the kids in Ohio (I’m so proud of Brandon and for a daughter-in-law who would follow him to the ends of the earth in order to glorify God) — and that He loves and protects them in wonderful and unexpected ways… as only a perfect Father could.
