There was a time not too long ago when I was restless, having struggles with what was happening in my life. Then it hit me: this season is
what I prayed for! Months before, I had been desperately praying for a change of season in my life. And here it was, exactly what I prayed for! Now, that put things into perspective! It wasn’t the type of season that I was accustomed to having in my life, and so was difficult to walk into. This answered prayer led me into a new way of being which I had to learn.
So, I began to embrace my answered prayer, learning this new way of living. It came flooding back to me why I so desperately prayed for it. I realize that it was just what I needed. More than I could imagine, it was very needed. Now I thank God every day, as I settle happily into my answered prayer. I am so thankful for answered prayers and for God’s perfect timing.
So if you ever find yourself struggling one day, remember: you might just have prayed for this! There is likely someone else praying for it somewhere in the world. If you’re struggling with an answered prayer, know that you’re not the first person to do so. Remember why you prayed for it in the first place, and embrace it. It might take a bit of settling into, but an answered prayer is a blessing! Answered prayers are a gift.
