You get what you ask for

If there is one thing I have learned about God over the past 5 years it is that you get what you ask for. It may not happen instantaneously, and it may not happen in the way you think it should (or will), but if you really, truly ask for something you desire, He will make it so.

Occasionally when I start to feel disconnected or unsatisfied with life I pray to become even closer to God because I’m obviously missing something and I need more of Him. I want to be close to God every day, but when I pray this particular prayer I know He is going to completely shake up my life to teach me a few lessons.

He teaches me of strength I didn’t know I had, and reminds me of the compassion I learned when I was young. Day to day life tends to harden the heart. The world is so full of pain and stress it is easy to become distracted and try to handle it on your own. I can’t handle this life on my own. I have to have God every day. I need to experience Jesus in me and around me all the time. My life becomes so much fuller and I feel as though I can give more as long as I am receiving from Him.

Praying ceaselessly helps me with this. I also find little reminders of God and his work all around me. I am not a perfect Christian by any means. I just try to be as Christ-like as I can.
