When It Seems Your Prayer Is A Contradiction

I had been asking for more...

praying about it
singing about it

and before I knew it, I was completely surrounded

with

newness
challenge
change

until one day I actually heard myself saying...

"Lord, this is too much!"

and it seemed that my prayer had been a contradiction

 
so I took some time to...

pause
reflect
reconsider

and as we began piecing our home back together

paint
flooring
furniture

 
 
 
 
 

I remembered the old saying... "less is more"
and realized that sometimes
 
when you're craving more
what you could really be craving is actually less
 
less drama
less fuss
fewer frills
 
and that's when the full realization that God knows best
(and that His timing is impeccable)
 
will light upon you
 
as you graciously learn how to
 
believe
fight
endure
 
even when
it seems that your prayer is a contradiction
