God still answers prayer....just not how we ask sometimes!!!

Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

As you already know, Jeremiah 29:11 is my all time favorite verse. Look at how much more meaning it has if you go and read the next two verses!!! Don't think that God didn't listen to us when we prayed concerning the election. Sometimes, His way of answering our prayers is way out of our realm of thinking!!! As long as we pray "God's will be done", that's all we can do....because....He sees the future...He knows what's in store for us...and, like a friend and I discussed yesterday....something good comes from everything.
What's that saying???.........
God never closes a door without opening a window!!!
