Life is meant to strengthen us, not break us. This is so hard to understand sometimes, especially when we want things to go our way and they don't. However, when this happens we need to understand that there's a reason God is telling us "No," or maybe it's "Not right now."
I've had to deal with this a lot in my life as I'm sure you have too. Things simply don't always go our way. That's just not how life works.
Does this mean that God loves us any less? That He wants us to hurt or feel rejected? Absolutely not.
What does it mean then? It means that God wants what's best for us. We need to trust that He knows what's best for us. But more than that we must also ask Him to show us these things so that our lives will be abundant in Him.
May I encourage you today to seek God's will, to discover His best for you? Instead of feeling down and out when you hear the words "No," or "Not yet" consider asking God why. (Trust me, He already knows that we're questioning so we should just go ahead and be honest with Him about it.) Take the time to seek His best and be blessed.
Until next time, Stay strong,
