I asked, I believed, and I received
For some time I had been feeling down and confused about where my life was going, or if it was even going anywhere. I felt helpless and alone. I’m 33 years old, and I felt that I wasn’t getting the things I wanted out of my life… a well-paying career, a loving romantic relationship, and my own home. Year after year, not having these things made me feel unfulfilled.
Then a friend at work shared something with me which he didn’t share with very many people. He pulled out of his pocket a tiny black plastic booklet with a picture of Jesus & Mary and said that he came upon this item thinking his wife left this out for him to “find” but wasn’t sure. He said that he started to carry this around in his pocket all the time as a reminder that through the tough times he was experiencing with his wife’s illness and the thought that he may lose his job due to the current economic situation, it was something that made him realize that no matter what, everything was going to be ok.
After my talk with him, I decided to ask God to give me something that I too could keep with me at all times as a reminder that everything I desire in life will come and to never stop believing. I even told God that it had to be something very distinct, so that the minute I saw it, I knew it was from Him. The day after I made my request I was working on a project at home, and as I moved a stack of boxes, I came upon this pink cross made of foam on the floor. I don’t know how I never noticed it there before, since it was directly by the front door and there’s no way I would’ve missed it. Then within a second I realized it was the gift I requested from God, right there before my own eyes! I immediately began to pray and say thank you for allowing me to receive exactly what I asked for.
Now I know all the things I desire will come to me very soon, and all I have to do is ask and believe in order to receive.
