I’m going to share a story that is often told as a joke. It’s called the parable of the drowning man or two boats and a helicopter. A man was stranded at sea. He prayed and asked God to save his life. Soon after, a boat came by and offered him some help. “No thanks,” he said. “I’m waiting for God to save me.” The men on the boat shrugged their shoulders and continued. As the man became more deeply concerned, another boat came by. Again, the people aboard offered this man help, and again he politely declined proclaiming, “I’m waiting for God to save me”. Then a helicopter came by and the pilot shouted down, “Grab this rope and I will lift you to safety.” To this the stranded man again replied, “No thanks, I’m waiting for God to save me.” So the helicopter reluctantly flew away. After some time, the man began to lose his faith, and soon after that he died. When he got to Heaven, he asked God "Why did you let me die? Why didn’t you answer my prayers? and God’s response was, "I did. I sent you two boats and a helicopter!”

The morale of the story is sometimes God does not answer our prayers in a certain way that we were expecting and we miss them. Don’t be so quick to reject something because it’s different or unexpected because you may be rejecting the answer that you have been looking for. 💖
