"to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." -Isaiah 61:3

PRAY: "Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart." Colossians 4:2 Have you ever grown tired of praying for something or someone? Paul says we should "devote" ourselves to prayer and be "watchful" in prayer. Our persistence is an expression of our faith that God answers our prayers. Faith shouldn't die if the answers come slowly, for the delay may be God's way of working his will in our lives.

Disappointments are just God's way of saying, "I've got something better". So be patient, have faith and live your life

I had no idea this was a bible verse. How amazing. I have thought about the past SOOOO many times, and have been like "oooohhhh, I get it now, god had control the whole time"
