Country singer Garth Brooks wrote a song that includes “some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers”. The more time has had to teach me wisdom, the more clearly I understand. Just because I wish and pray for something does not mean it is good for me. Until recovery begins an addict will pray for the next fix, a an alcoholic for the next bottle, a sex addict for the next encounter and so on. After pining for twenty years for her then running into an old girlfriend who had let herself go is another way I came to see the wisdom in not getting some prayers answered. What a mess she was and likely my life could have been if we had ended up together.
You’re old enough for your wants not to hurt you.
