Life doesn’t always give you what you want but it does give you the circumstances to make it happen. The tricky part is recognizing the opportunities that help you learn how to do it. There are probably plenty of chances you’re overlooking because you don’t realize that’s your lesson that will help you grow and achieve what you’re wishing and praying for. You don’t just suddenly become patient, you learn how to be patient. You don’t wake up rich, you learn how to manage what you have better so when you have more you know how to manage that. You might want a better job, what can you learn from the one you’re in until you land that job that takes you to the next step?
If you feel like your prayers aren’t being answered, I encourage you to take a look at the situations in your life that provide you with opportunities that you might be overlooking. Many times, things aren’t given to us they’re acquired. When you ask for things going forward, remember to look for the circumstances that provide you with plenty of chances to learn, grow, and cultivate what it is you’re asking for. The more you practice the better you’ll get, maybe that’s why you’re presented with so many situations to learn.
