When God says NO, it means that He has something better in mind for us.  Thank You God for that.

God I give to You my broken dreams.  Please mend my heart in the process.  Thank You because You know more than I know.

Jeremiah 29:11 and record it in your journal. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (NIV).
