On bruised knees she prays
For God to make him love her.
“I ask for happiness, Lord,”
she pleads in desperation,
Thinking he is her only chance
For contentment.
A routine, executed daily,
As she hopes
To keep her faith,
Waiting patiently for God to provide.

The child, bruised and battered, prays
For God to make them love her.
“I ask for happiness, Lord,”
She pleads in desperation,
Thinking they are her only chance
For contentment.
A routine, executed daily,
As she hopes
To keep her faith,
Waiting patiently for God to provide.

The runaway and the woman, hurt,
Find each other in the shelter’s chapel
Praying for happiness.
God lifts the scales from their eyes --
Together they pray for the other
Finding their faith
Where it always resided,
Finding their happiness
Where it always resided.
Realizing the miracle prayed for
Is not always the miracle received.

God always provides.

So true...
Too often people try and make God into some sort of Genie who has do give them whatever they want or else they deny him...

But God answers in three devine ways...

Yes, when he knows we are ready...
No, when he knows we are not...
Later, we he knows we need to mature more...

We see but a small fragment of what he already knows. So we will be best guided by the small inner voice that he calls to us...
