Be Careful What You Ask For!

1 Comment

St. Teresa of Avila once said, “There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.” What in the world could she have meant by that? Exactly what she said. God has a perfect will for our lives. Do our prayers change His will? That’s a good question. But we often pray for what we think is in our best interests, when God has something else completely in mind for us. As a loving Father, he will at times give us what we ask for. On occasion, we live to regret making those requests. Has this ever happened to you?

  1. Being a Little House on the Prairie fan most of my life, I told God, “Gee, Lord, it would be neat to teach in a one- room schoolhouse, like Laura Ingalls Wilder.” Being a public school teacher, multiple grades in one room is not the norm, but God answered…He sent me to the alternative school for my district, where kids who were removed from their regular school for severe disciplinary reasons. Being a tough disciplinarian, I flourished. The kids are still just kids, but teaching multiple grades in one room is HARD!
