That moment when you receive exactly what you asked for … … that was Cub 2 on Christmas morning when he realized that the biggest wrapped box was for him, and that it contained a full set of drums! I guess the drumsticks in his stocking weren’t a great clue because he loses drumsticks in band class like they’re pencils.
I think I love this picture because I know this feeling. When I pray and wait and pray and wait and it seems like God just isn’t going to answer me, I get discouraged and feel as though I must’ve done something wrong. However, just when I get to the point of giving up and thinking it’s never going to happen, God answers!! He answers and that feeling of gratitude – because I wasn’t quite sure if what I was asking for was in line with what God had planned for me – is just indescribable! It usually comes out in tears and high-fives to God and sometimes my happy dance (if I have on the right shoes). I love those moments!
So listen. Don’t give up yet! Ask Jesus to help you to remain faithful while you wait. It’s so worth it!
