Day 40 – A Change Is Gon’ Come

September 16, 2011

I won a competition today and I got a new car, some money and a trip to an island. My mom and my brother and sister were there cheering me on, and when the make-up lady at the competition put on my make-up she said “take no prisoners”…

Later tonight I had a long conversation with my mom. I think we spoke the same language to each other for the first time in a long time.

I don’t quite know what to say.

Yesterday I had no idea how or when I was going to be able to save enough money to get a new car and today I have one. Not too long ago, I didn’t have the best relationship with my siblings and today they were holding back tears of joy when I won.

It has been a long time coming, but the air has shifted dramatically. I don’t have the answers to everything, but I know that the answers exist and that is enough for me for now.

“I asked for Strength…

And God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom..

And God gave me Problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity…

And God gave me Brain and Brain to work.

I asked for Courage….

And God gave me Danger to overcome.

I asked for Love…

And God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for Favors

And G0d gave me opportunities

I received nothing I wanted

I received Everything i needed!”

It’s been a long time coming. Yes, indeed. It has been a long time.
