“If you say that dreams don’t come true, I would have to ask you at what point you stopped dreaming and started doubting, and what made you choose that particular time frame as a completion date for your prayer? What might happen if you continued to expect your prayer to be answered instead of proclaiming it a failure? What if your answer was to arrive the day after you hit the “cancel” button on you request?
Unfortunately, you may never know. Why sit around thinking about how you were ignored by God when you could be thinking of all the different ways your prayer could be answered, and how grateful you are that God does such things for you? Why view yourself as a victim when you could just as easily view yourself as the recipient of great gifts – even if some of those gifts are lessons that you asked for in some way, but would rather not learn?”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
