Balancing Time

Angie here.

I prayed. He answered. Holy cow!

It's a deluge. I prayed for business to pick up in our heating company. Our poor service tech is wondering what happened! He's suddenly working overtime.

I prayed. He answered. Holy cow!
It's a deluge. I prayed for the ability to move out of our family business and into my own calling. Now the move has started, but I had no idea how complicated it would be while I'm writing, while I'm teaching, while I'm already working both businesses. Over time.

I prayed. He answered. Holy cow!
It's a deluge. I prayed for the ability to move into a life of significance as I was releasing my children. I feared the depression from the last child's adulthood. My youngest is a freshman in college. My life is full. Working over time again.

I think I learned something beyond three's a charm. I am so very grateful that God answers prayer. Now I'm praying for God to help me catch up to His abundance. I'm praying for smart productive time & resource management, both are in short supply. But as I've learned, He answers in overwhelming fashion. I don't know how He'll do it...I just know He will. I'm expecting to say, Holy cow! as I am surprised at God's creativity again.

Dear Lord,
Sometimes we pray for the desires of our heart, but we forget to ask you to help us wisely handle the blessings you bestow.
Please grant us the blessings you have but we ask that we be given wisdom in managing and in recognizing the gift of answered prayers.
In Jesus name,

Please come visit me at my website and blog.


  1. Great post! I'm always in awe of how God may answer our prayers but it may not be the way we expect. Yet His way is always better.

  2. There is an old saying you better watch out what you pray for..


  3. Thanks, ladies :-) I'm praying :-)

  4. Ang,

    I LOVE how God works! He's amazing. I've got a devotional by Andrew Murray titled Christ in the School of Prayer. That book is amazing.

  5. I love it! Isn't God awesome - that He always hears us and always answers!

    Blessings to all,

  6. God definitely answers! I had a dream on Tuesday night. Today it came true. I felt like God was letting me know He is still in charge and has His hand upon me. In His own way, He is comforting me.
