Sometimes, especially when we're young, we ask God for things we want, without understanding the ramifications of those requests. As I look around me, and also back on my life, these unanswered requests come to mind, and I'm often thankful that the things I asked for didn't come to pass. It could be as simple as a job I thought I wanted, that didn't turn out to be all that it seemed, or a relationship with someone who turned out to be better for someone else.
How about you? Do you think back on past requests and thank God for not fulfilling them?
