You Get What You Pray For

Ladies, I can honestly say that this was one of the craziest work weeks ever!  Considering my off days are Sundays and Mondays, Tuesdays feel like most people’s Mondays.  So of course on Tuesday I started my week a little sluggish but I was oblivious to what the days ahead had in store for me!  More than half way through the day my supervisor placed me on a FINAL warning for something I never received a verbal or written warning for.  Needless to say, I almost lost control and verbally assaulted my superior but God helped me pull it together quickly.  Afterwards, I returned to my desk and said a brief prayer to my Father just simply asking Him to do what He sees fit.  By that point I had enough of the nonsense that the company stood for and I wanted God to grant the true desire of my heart…RELEASE from that mediocre job!

On Thursday I was called into the conference room where minutes later He did just that–I was RELEASED from my job! HALLELUJAH!! THANK YOU LORD!! I know you’re thinking I’m crazy for being happy after being terminated but if you knew how much I hated my job you would be praising His name as well.  Every since I started working for that company I’ve hated every aspect of it–not just my position, but the overall structure.  At first I prayed for another position and God granted me that only to show me how chaotic that place really was.  The more God exposed to me about the way business was handled, the more I realized that He would never increase my territory there.  God never operates in chaos nor will He allow His children to do the same.  “Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40) 

Since I allowed FEAR to force me to stay with a company that was not worthy of my time and experience, God took it upon himself to remove me.  The funny thing is that FEAR is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real! I was so afraid to trust God to give me more than this job that I stayed when I knew better.  These days I am replacing that fear with FAITH that God has a FAVOR in His eye for me!  The last few days I have been so relieved and care free simply because I know who is calling the shots from now on.  This relationship that I have with Jesus entitles me to so much more. I’m sure some of what He has for me I may not qualify for but My God will make a way. “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:10)

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for listening to my cares, concerns, gripes, and groans.  Even though I might not be making moves to change my situation You are already handling it!  It’s great to know that whatever I need, whether I know it or not, You have made sure to address it!  I thank you for running the show from behind the scenes because I know for certain it is nothing but the God in ME! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Today I urge all women to EMPOWER yourselves to pray about it and wait for your response! Trust me you really do get what you pray for…as long as it’s in line with His will! Fortune cookie who? Horoscope what? Jesus is the only one I trust! Have a blessed week Ladies!

  1. Tasha I feel u on this. I pray & believe that God is preparing you for something great. Pastor Hannah’s sermon yesterday was titiled “The Servitude”. 1) Speak it, 2)Agree to it, 3)Believe it, & last Put Something on it (PRAISE) AMEN!!!!!!

    1. AMEN cousin! That was nothing more than your confirmation to God so GO head and walk in it! Stay in position until God is ready to release you and your obedience will be repayed for sure! B Blessed!

  2. As I read today’s post, God spoke to me and said: “MY God shall supply ALL my needs according to His riches in glory. Get ready, because God is getting ready to ENLARGE your territory. Keep the faith and allow God to chart your path. He opens doors that no man can close. Be encouraged today!

    1. Thanks Krystal! I am walking in His word and I have great faith that His will be done!!! Thank you Lord!!!

  3. God bless you!!! You have to be fired to be hired, someone once said. Operating in faith opens doors you never knew existed. Thank you for posting, I needed that reminder that God is a way maker. No fear, I’m fearless!!

    1. Yes ma’am!!!! I know that He is in total control so I am completely fine with that! Have your way Lord!

    1. Speak it into my life lady!!! I am so excited about my upset because it is a setup for my blessing!!! God is so awesome!

  4. Praise Him!! That is awesome. We all must recognize our rainbows in the midst of what we or what others may think are clouds! Thanks ladies for keeping me encouraged through your words! God Bless

    1. God Bless You Aleta! I trust and believe that God is going to bless our readers as He blesses us so make sure you are in position for that falling blessing!!!!

  5. Thanks Tasha. I’m glad that you have faith to know that you get what you pray for. My grandmother would always say to me ” be careful what you ask for because you just might get it.” I would respond like what is she talking about. Some things we ask for just might not be what is best for us, but God to will show us that what we wanted he gave to us and he then reveals to us if it is/isn’t th best move. God is going to grant whatever your heart desires Tasha with good results from the beginning.

    1. That is surely the truth lady! I was given many opportunities to leave but I stayed and finally my Daddy granted my prayers. He waited for the time when I had learned everything from that company that I could… He waited until my faith was strong enough… He waited until I was so consumed with Him that nothing else mattered to release me and I am ecstatic! God really does work in mysterious ways.

  6. I didn’t read any blogs yesterday nor did I post on my blog, but this morning I decided to visit here first. Thank you for sharing. I have been praying for myself in this area. I need to erase fear and replace it with faith! God is going to take you to the place where He wants you to be and you will be more than happy with that!

    1. You better know it girl! God is the pilot of this plane and I plan on relaxing while we cruise on thru! I encourage you to continue praying and allow God the opportunity to make it happen for you just as I know He will! Be Blessed!

  7. Tasha, I appreciate this post. I can think back to the many times that I have prayed for something and after I got it I was like…why did I want this in the first place? Sometimes God will give you the desires of your heart even when you really don’t know what you are asking for…

    I too am happy for YOU!

    1. Awww thanks Ms. Lundy! God is developing my faiath daily and it is alright with me. I am just soooo happy with our relationship that I am willing to step out of my comfort net and allow him the freedom to do as He pleases… Believe me its a whole lot better than me trying to figure it out on my own!

  8. You know I can relate to this story! Im so happy that you can praise God in what SEEMS like turmoil! I’ll say it again>>>>I’m excited about your future!!! WOOT WOOT!

    (And Im so happy you added that He gives you what you prayer as long as its in accordance with His will 🙂 ) Ive learned that He ALWAYS hears and answers…His answer just may be NO or yes, but not right now.

    Good Stuff Tashi!

    1. Thanks a mil Kris Kakes! When I was younger I remember a time when you would always say pray pray pray and it would really aggravate me… but these days God has taking control andall I can do is pray pray pray!!! Thank you for being such an awesome example!! WOOT WOOT!!!
