When you ask for courage God doesn’t make you fearless, He presents you with opportunities to overcome your fears. When you ask for love God doesn’t answer your prayer by sending you perfect people, He answers it by pointing you toward the people in your life that you’ve found it hard to love and saying “go for it.” When you ask for happiness God doesn’t magically erase all the sadness from your life, He brings on more rainy days pushing you to find sunshine in the midst of them. When you ask for success God doesn’t grow your bank account or your social circle, He challenges you to redefine what success really is. For all things that you could possibly pray for God has an unexpected answer in the form of an opportunity. It’s your job to recognize that opportunity and create the answer you were looking for from it.
