Last weekend I went to the State Fair of Texas with my sister and niece. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
I went to the fair with the expectation of having Fletcher’s corny dog. If you haven’t had a Fletcher’s corny dog, you may want to try one. #freeplug lol
Storytime: When I arrived at the fair one of the first food places I tried was Fletcher’s corny dogs. The great thing about Fletcher’s is they now offer different corny dogs such as a turkey and a veggie corny dog, which are both great options for me.
After, ordering my turkey dog, I was told I was going to have to wait because they had to make it fresh. I waited patiently for about five minutes while my stomach growled and it appeared countless people were passing me up. #patience However, I remembered I requested a specialty item, which isn’t their staple item; therefore, it required special preparation. Finally, my turkey corny dog came up and it was delish.
While waiting, I thought about how God may have special blessings that he is preparing for us, which require a little longer to assemble. While I am grateful to accept his pre-packaged blessings, I’ll wait longer for his customized special delivery blessings. We may often feel like God has forgotten about our unanswered prayers, but he hears every last prayer. Also, because he’s omniscient, he has a perfect memory and can recall everything!
So, the next time you are frustrated or discouraged remember specialty items take a little longer to assemble. ?
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
