Do you ask God alot of questions, expecting an answer. Well I do and you know he always answers sometimes it’s yes, sometimes it’s no and sometimes maybe and wait awhile. I prepare myself for the answer but often it’s still not preparation enough.

I recently was asking Him for help as it related to my finances and college tuition for me and my son. My college has been totally financed from semester to semester.  

When I ask God to help raise my son He does. It’s twisted to know my son won’t be going to college. Maybe he didn’t need to be so far away from home, maybe he sabotaged his life on purpose because he really wanted to do something else. How can a person not want to take advantage of something free or greatly discounted?

Once again I asked God how was I going to pay for college, how was I going to convince my son that “pot” was bad for him and his career goals. You know some of his friends do substances and my son sometimes acted like it wouldn’t rub off on him,or he’d never get caught, all I want to say is “I told you so.”

    • I was saying to my hubby last week how I always ask God stuff he said to me you can’t ask him everything. I had to remind him that if I can’t ask the creator of every and all things made by him then who can I ask and can get the correct answer from. LOL girl he shut up. Yesssssssssssss I’m always questioning God about things doesn’t His Word tells us to come to before the throne of grace don’t it? So I ask in prayer all the time and there is nothing wrong with that!

    • Absolutely. God wants us to ask, with boldness even. And better than that is the priviledge to lay our troubles at His feet and leave them there, now if we would just do it!

    • Yes, 47, I ask Him questions all the time. And He almost always gives me the same answer.

      “Trust me.”

    • BB..We all fall short of His Glory...but I totally understand what you‘re saying..Sometimes I too feel that I don’t deserve to ask Him questions, much less to expect Him to answer them or grant my wishes...But I’m human and God knows my shortcoming’s and He loves me inspite of and He expects us to come to Him and ask...That’s all a part of coming closer to Him...

    • BB I know what you are saying. I really do. But God never expected us to be 100% perfect, that is just a lie from “you know who.” We will never ever be perfect. Asking God when we feel unworthy gives us even more faith and reaffirms that he is such a loving Father to us.  

      None of us will ever be perfect enough if we judge ourselves to the standards of what we “believe” is perfect
      in God’s eyes. He loves us even with all of our infirmities.
      He loves and answers prayers for those who are only 1% perfect... because “He” is PERFECT love.

      I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to write that muchtongue out
      My heart was just touched heart

    • BB - scripture instructs us to petition God in prayer. Not just for your benefit but to give Him the glory when your prayer is answered.

      Ladies have you noticed how much joy the conversation has when you are telling others about God’s goodness. If we did not ask and he did not answer then what we have to testify about?
