It doesn’t matter anymore
There is this story of a lady who was one day giving her little nephew some lessons. He was generally a good, attentive child, but on this occasion he could not fix his mind on his work. Suddenly he said, ‘Auntie, may I kneel down and ask God to help me find my marble?’ “Sure,” his aunt replied. The little boy knelt by his chair, closed his eyes, and prayed silently. Then he arose and went on with his lessons contentedly.
Next day, almost afraid of asking the question, lest the child had not found his toy, and so might lose his simple faith, the lady said to him, ‘Well, dear, have you found your marble?’ ‘No, Auntie,’ was the reply; ‘but God has made me not want to.’
God does not always answer our prayers in the way we wish or expect: but if we are sincere in our appeal to Him, He will take from us what is contrary to His will and give us faith to leave all in His holy will.
