Do you ever get tired of waiting on God to answer your prayers? Recently, I began to feel a sense of frustration with the wait, and also a little bit tired.
I have been impatiently waiting since 2009 (when I graduated from college) for a full-time teaching job and there have been numerous moments where I have been upset, angry, frustrated with waiting for Him to answer my prayer instead of looking around and seeing HOW He has already answered me:
He has answered me by providing me with a way to pay my monthly bills and still have a little extra left over
He has answered me by giving me the opportunity to be an even bigger part of the Little Man's life (and to continue to be
He has answered my prayer by allowing me to watch and be a part of helping the Little Man grow from a baby to a toddler
He has answered my prayer by helping me teach myself and the Little Man something each day and by laughing and smiling in the daily routine
He has answered my prayer by always being with me and for showing me how He does in fact listen and strengthen me each day
He continues to answer my prayers...and maybe one day I will actually have my own classroom but for right now He has given me something that makes me happy and useful and I am blessed to have this as my answered prayer.
