Pursue It


Apparently it’s a win-win all around if you’re God.  If, on the other hand, you happen to be a mere mortal you might be in for a bit of a waiting game.  Wait for your prayer to be answered, or not.  If not, how do you know it’s only a delay?  If it’s not a delay, how do you know when the something better came along?  This quote is just our way of patronizing ourselves so we don’t feel like such schmucks for begging an invisible being for things we are afraid we can’t or shouldn’t have anyway.

Truth is:  we’d probably have a lot more of what we asked for if we actually pursued it.

  1. It's like that old saying:"Prayer can move mountains, but you better bring a shovel." 😉


  2. For sure don't pray to a horse. They are notorious neigh sayers.


  3. @TWF,I brought a shovel, but I think Exrelayman's horse added heavily to the labor.
