Prayer Forgotten?

Yet, they say, “My Lord deserted us: he has forgotten us.”
 Never! Can a mother forget her little child and not have love for her own son? Yet, even if that should be, I will not forget you.  
Isaiah 49: 14-15 (The Living Bible)                                                                           
I believe one of the reasons the Lord allowed me to be single until I was 40 is to relate to my older single sisters. I remember how it feels to wonder (if only for a spilt second) if the Lord has forgotten your prayer for a mate…a godly mate. I remember how it feels when everyone else seems to have found the “perfect” mate. I remember how it feels to take control of the situation since God hasn’t given you the man you want when you wanted him.  I remember how it feels to idealize marriage. Yes, God has given me a powerful memory. He even allowed me to write my thoughts and my actions in a journal so I wouldn’t forget! Today when I write that God hasn’t forgotten you, I know from personal experience that He hasn’t. Be encouraged!
