Have you ever prayed for something you really wanted? I’m not talking about praying a few times and stopping after a few days. I mean REALLY praying for something and not stopping until you see it manifest, even if it takes months or years! Lately, I’ve learned that these are the prayers that sometimes drive us the craziest, but also have the power to start a revolution.
Out of natural instinct our bodies are programmed to push us to a certain limit, but once we hit that limit it takes an external push to keep us going (whether it be our family, kids, mentors or friends) or our bodies will physically shut down. The results can come through sickness, stress, hair loss and anxiety. I’ve come to realize that although I have a awesome support system of family, friends and church, what has truly kept me going through certain obstacles in my life has been prayer. It is the one thing that has brought me peace and given me the strength to keep pushing beyond the limits that my body would allow me to go.
Through this pushing and perseverance something beautiful emerges; an answered prayer! 🙂 Not only was the prayer answered, but it brought an increase in my faith and assurance that this answered prayer is only the beginning of something huge! God is not in the business of simply answering prayers, he makes sure to follow them up with something mind blowing that shows the world that only HE could have pulled it off. These acts are the first steps of revolution that inspires others and brings them to God.
It’s a fact that a woman who gets what she wants is happy, but a woman who gets what she wants through perseverance in God has the ability to change the world ! 🙂
