Reflections

So this week I achieved something in a few hours that I could not achieve these past two years. For the past two years I've been praying to God for a specific thing. After I'd pray, I would do things that I thought positioned me towards attaining what I prayed for but saw no progress. Finally Tuesday, I got frustrated and questioned God. After venting, I took a step back, and said I know whose I am. God wouldn't place me in a position to settle. So I decided to change my approach. I decided to start giving out, what I was praying to receive. I intentionally set a goal that morning, to give my time so that someone else would benefit from it. While in the process of execution, I received a call that day about what I had prayed for. By 3pm the following day I had received it. Lesson learned. God calls us to be obedient, to be self sacrificing. If you find that you are praying and that your prayers haven't been answered. Take a step forward, and ask yourself, what are you doing for the world.Take ownership of your prayers and put them to action by blessing someone, because your faith tells you that your blessing is coming. God is accountable.
