I grew up spending my summers just outside of Kansas City at Circle-C and L-Bar-C Ranches. I think the camps may still be out there but definitely under new ownership. We used to put signs on the side of the bus or vans "Circle-C or Bust" or "Kansas City or Bust" then off we were. The long drive down the freeway with a group of teenage kids. But we had a blast. I made a lot of friends. When I graduated from college, I took another bus ride with a group of St. Cloud State students down to Kansas City. They were going to a conference. I stayed with a friend and looked for a job. My friends and I were praying hard that God provide a job for me in the Overland Park, Kansas area.
So does God answer prayers? I believe he answers: Yes, No and not now.
What if God answers yes? Are we really ready for it?
Can we accept the NO when God says that?
Do we think God is answering NO when he is really saying not now?
Has God answered my prayer?
I haven't given up on it yet. He keeps reminding me about the prayer. For now, I'm accepting "not now" for the answer until I hear the "yes". Just saying......
