Righteous Desires

The scriptures teach us that we will be granted the righteous desires of our hearts.  The prayers of the righteous will be heard and answered.  Right now, Michael and I are at a point in our lives where there are many things that we are looking for and desiring to improve our family and our lives.  Much time has been spent in prayer, fasting, searching, pondering, and talking among other things.  The desires we have are righteous.  Our voices are lifted up to our God in Heaven with faith and hope that these righteous desires will be granted.  Of course, we have in our own little minds what we think would be the solution to all of this.  These solutions are also sent up in prayer.  Part of a desire being righteous though, is it being in accordance to what God knows is best for us.  So while we plan and search and pray, we have to keep in mind that we need our hearts and minds in tune with God's.  He knows us.  He knows our needs and wants.  He knows our family.  He knows what we want for our family and our future.  He knows what is best for us.  We will continue to search, pray, talk, ponder and plan, that's part of our responsibility.  But we will also have to continue to have patience.  Our prayers and righteous desires will be granted, but in the Lord's way and time, not ours.
