How to Keep Believing


Have you ever wanted something so badly, but it was delayed? Lyell Rader said, “If you can’t pray a door open, don’t pry it open.” Some things are not good for us or not good for us right now! If God doesn’t answer the way we want Him to, we should thank Him! He’s our Father, and He knows best! The waiting is what can get some of us in a mess! We’re tempted to take matters into our own hands!

Yes, I have had to pass this same test! Be encouraged and stand! I’ve learned that no matter how long it takes, you must never let your heart lose faith! I waited seven years before I got a promotion! After working only a few months, I understood why God delayed my career advancement. Not only did I not like being an administrator, but I also promised I wouldn’t do it again! Fate intervened! When asked to be an administrator again, I knew it was my destiny.

The house that the owner gave me a hard time during negotiations was much smaller than the house I eventually purchased. This reminds me of Jennifer Hudson buying her assistant a house. I don’t know if he previously attempted to buy a house or his financial situation. I do know that she stated that he has been by her side since elementary school; so, he was rewarded for his faithful friendship.

I am convinced that part of reaching our destinies includes giving to others. My life and my family’s legacy is based upon giving, which makes it easy for me to write about. There are many benefits to giving, and I wrote about some of them in a previous post. Your reward might not come when you want it, but it is always on time! What looks denied is often just delayed! Just keep believing!
