Why would you stop praying for things to work out? You have an idea about what things working out looks like. So, you paint your own picture of how the future should be. Consequently, when it doesn’t happen. Which it won’t! You’ve never seen things play out exactly as you expect. God is always wanting to stretch us. The Bible says, that faith pleases God, and yet, “faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.” So, we’re not going to see what we anticipate.
