Motivational Monday: “Our prayers are answered not when we are given what we ask but when we are challenged to be what we can be.” – Morris Adler
What a great quote for my life! So often, my prayers aren’t answered because circumstances change, but because my heart changes and I live into who I was created to be. I fully believe that I wasn’t created to be sad, depressed, harsh, unkind and/or unavailable, etc. However, I find myself living into those qualities far too often for my liking and when that happens it seems like my world is crumbling. I find that I must return to my center in my quiet, private time with Jesus so that I can be reminded of who He created me to be and I can live into that. I can agree with Him and live into the person that He created instead of the one that has been destroyed by the pain and suffering of this earth. My prayer is that I continue to grow into the person I was created to be!
Happy Monday and Merry Christmas!
