The thing I have realized about blessings is that you can’t just ask for them. It doesn’t stop there.
You have to ask with an open mind, open heart, open hands, and open eyes because those blessings will show up in ways you never would’ve imagined.
You have to be open minded enough to appreciate the way it’s delivered. Your heart has to be open enough to be grateful to the messenger. Your hands have to be ready to carry the burdens before the blessings.
And you have to keep your eyes open and be aware of the opportunities in which to receive your blessings.
It doesn’t stop with the prayer and it doesn’t end in the receipt, but it continues in the work.
