When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. - Psalm 73:22

Dear Heavenly Father, you watch over my whole life.  You create good situations for me.  Some are learning moments. Others are blessings between a father and his child.  All are from your gracious hand.  In my mind, I easily become negative in the face of adversity.  I look at my empty nets and cry inside.  But you are working every situation for my good, even when I cannot imagine what good will come out of it. If I doubt this, Iā€™m like a mere animal and have lost what makes me human, that is; faith. Oh God, don't let me miss the joy of waiting as well as receiving. AMEN

God is more interested in being our heart's desire rather than giving us our heart's desire.
