“If you don’t ask, you don’t get”    Mahatma Gandhi

I asked for something last week.  Ten years ago I wouldn’t have asked.  Age, life, or something has given me the courage to ask – sometimes for big things.

It was a good thing for me to ask.   I was nervous but I didn’t have anything to fear.  “No” just meant that I wouldn’t get what I already didn’t have.

I didn’t get what I asked for and I didn’t lose a thing.  But now I know the answer.

I’m going to keep asking.  A “yes” will happen soon.

7 Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 Everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And the door will be opened for everyone who knocks.

                                     Matthew 7:7-8  CEV

    Great post! Got me thinking about what I don’t have because I haven’t asked yet. Hmmmmm.

    One who dares to ASK
    Is worthy to RECEIVE
