His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. Luke 1:50/ But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children Psalms 103:17

GOD~owned random thought:
There was a young mother checking on her newborn baby. When she looked over the baby sleeping in her crib she saw there was a huge terrifying looking spider on her babies face. She slapped the spider to the ground & stomped on it. A few months later the mother took her child to the park to play. While at the park the mother decided to read a book while her child played in the sandbox. When the mother looked up to check on her child she saw a snake wrapped around her child’s waist. The mother immediately grabbed the snake & stomped it to death with the heel of her shoe. There were several years that had passed without any frightful incidents, like these. There was a day when the daughter was playing in the yard while the mother cleaned out her car. The daughter had seen a beautiful butterfly that came right up to her face & sat in her hair. The daughter tried to catch the butterfly to show it to her mother. Finally, the daughter caught it & took it to her Mother to show how beautiful it was, but when she opened her hand the butterfly had died. The daughter, not knowing how delicate the butterfly was, had squeezed it too tightly choking its life. The mother prayed to GOD, as she normally did every night before bed.  She talked to GOD asked HIM every night, if there is any way please let my Mother, Father, & husband have a chance to see my daughter to love on her in their special way. When the young mother was pregnant with her daughter there was a fatal accident, on their way to Church, & she was the only survivor. That night the mother had a dream. In the dream, GOD showed her that HE heard her prayers & was quick to answer them. HE revealed to her that HE allowed her father to kiss his granddaughter when she was a baby. HE allowed her husband to hug his daughter as a toddler, & HE allowed her mother to dance with her granddaughter that very day. The mother asked GOD why would YOU send them back as hideous scary creatures as a spider & snake. GOD replied they are hideous to you but I love them all the same. There was neither venom nor fangs in these creatures.  They were living, breathing, & innocent lives taken for granted. They were an answer to a prayer & yet still killed in the blessing.
This is an example of “be careful what you pray for because you just might get it!” Also this is how the enemy sees us, as a threat for no reason. We are tortured & treated unfairly just because we exist. Don’t take my story literally, meaning that this could happen or I believe in reincarnation. (While in the bath) I was given this story while I was just marinating on GOD’s goodness, mercy, grace, & how HE hears us. I was thinking about how GOD refers to animals to describe to us like the Lion as mighty/strong, the sheep as humble/innocent, the dove as pure/peaceful, & even the ant HE has talked about in Proverbs 6:6-Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and become wise!…GOD loves us & wants to answer every one of our prayers, wisely.
What if HE actually answered them but NOT in the way we expect, would this be any less of an answer? Do we actually NeeD EVERYthing we pray for? Take this how you might I was just given this analogy/parable directly from GOD so I claim it as GOD~owned.
I started NOT to share this because it seemed corny but hey whatever…..
GOD Blesses!
